A Prayer for Sunday, February 22, 2015

First Sunday in Lent

O God,

Thank you for Sunday! Thank you for the Lord’s Day! Thank you for Resurrection Day!

Thank you that on this one day out of every seven we get to stop and celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and to anticipate our own resurrection.

Help us to remember that we have already died with Christ and have already been raised with him to walk in newness of life. Let us celebrate not only what was and what will be but also what already is.

Thank you that in the midst of this season of repentance and fasting we get to step aside to have a day of celebration and feasting. Make us so mindful of the reality of resurrection that our celebration will be heartfelt and genuine …
