Eleventh Day of Easter
We praise you because you are, your Son said, God not of the dead but of the living.
Thank you for all the ways that you let us know that we are among the living. Thank you for our sense of the presence of your Spirit, for our awareness of the presence of your love, and for our experience of the presence of your life.
Help us to live in ways that reflect the reality that we are among the living; help us to live in ways that are guided by your Spirit, that are inspired by your love, and that are energized by your life.
Let us grow toward full awareness of how alive we are in you.
Let us grow toward a mature lifestyle of living in you.
As we grow in being truly alive, let our life in you show itself in ever-increasing humility, sensitivity, compassion, sacrifice, forgiveness, trust, hope, and peace.
