Thirteenth Day of Easter
We praise you for your great grace in which you come to us so that we can know you and in knowing you know real and eternal life.
We praise you for your crucified and resurrected Son Jesus Christ who by his sojourn on Earth and by his presence with us makes it possible for us to know you.
Help us to grow in our knowledge of you—in our personal and intimate relationship with you—that we might become more and more alive and that we might in our living reflect more and more of your life and love.
Let the life of the resurrected Lord move more and more into the center of our being; from that center let his life spread out into our life until he permeates it all. Then let his life keep on moving outward from us so that it touches everything we touch, affects every person we affect, and impacts every situation that we encounter.
