A Prayer for Eastertide

 

 

O Lord Jesus Christ forgive us for the time when we have forgotten your Risen Presence forever with us.

Forgive us for times when we failed in some task, because we did not ask Your help.

Forgive us for times when we fell to some temptation because we tried to meet it by ourselves.

Forgive us for times when we were afraid, because we thought that we were alone in the dark.

Forgive us for times when we were driven to despair, because we were trying to fight the battle in our own unaided strength.

Forgive us for times when we said and did things which now we are ashamed to remember that You did hear and see.

Forgive us for times when death seemed very terrible, and the loss of loved ones beyond all bearing, because we forgot that You have conquered death.

Make us hear again your words:  “Lo, I am with you always, even to the close of the age,” and in that promise grant us to find courage and strength to meet all things undismayed.

This we ask for your name’s sake,

Amen
