A Prayer for Sunday, August 24, 2014

The Lord’s Day

O God,

Thank you for the privilege we have
to worship you on Sunday,
on the day of the week on which
your Son Jesus was raised from the dead.

As we worship you today for
your great saving act of
raising Jesus from the dead,
remind us that we have been
raised to walk in newness of life
that we will one day be raised
from our graves.

Help us to remember that
since you raised Jesus
from the dead,
since you have raised us
walk in newness of life,
since you will one day raise us
from our graves,
you certainly can raise us
those troubles and threats that
feel like death to us.

Lead us today truly to celebrate
your resurrection power.
