A Prayer for Saturday, May 3, 2014

Fourteenth Day of Easter

O God,

As best as we can understand
from your Book,
our life after
the great future resurrection
will be one of
uninterrupted joy,
unlimited understanding, and
unhindered fellowship.

For now, though, even as
we live lives in which
we have been raised
to walk in newness of life,
we live with
interrupted joy,
limited understanding,
hindered fellowship.

Still, because
the resurrected Christ
lives in us, we do have
joy in you,
understanding of you, and
fellowship with you—
far, far more
than we would have
without his presence
in us.

Remind us of how wonderful
our admittedly limited life is
because of the resurrected Christ
and of how unspeakably wonderful
our unlimited life will be
because of the resurrected Christ.

And in him, let
our joy,
our understanding,
our fellowship
with every passing moment.
