Prayer for Easter

A prayer in the traditional structure of a "collect", written by our seminary intern Blanca Baker for one of her classes:

Eternal and loving God, we come before You in awe, to adore You and to praise Your name, and in remembrance of Your sacrifice on the cross and to celebrate Your resurrection.

Oh precious God, only to You all of our thoughts are known and only You can really understand us because You lived the suffering firsthand when You came to be part of this world who set You up to die on the cross at Calvary.

Oh God, forgive us for what we have done to You; make us new and help us so that we seek to live our lives to please You. Guide us to that perfect life that can only be achieved through You.

Oh God, hear our prayers so that we can be deserving children of Your love.

Thank You Oh Lord for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to this world in order to save it and to teach us the way to live in hope for eternal life.

In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
