Prayer for Easter Sunday. As delivered by the Rev. Colin Sinclair: Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland
Lord, it feels as though we’ve been walking in the Good Friday shadow of the cross; feeling disorientated, concerned and filled with heartache;
Praying for those poorly, whether government leader or more personally known and comfort for those bereaved;
Expressing thanks for the selfless dedication of NHS staff, those delivering social care,and everyone ensuring that essential services and supplies are maintained, in company with those who volunteer.
Lord, as we journey on,
help us now to embrace the dawning Easter joy of the cross.
Accepting, like the first disciples, the wonder of Christ’s resurrection;
that it may take time to comprehend the reality of Easter. reflecting new life through words and deeds.
Hear us and journey with us.
In the name of the risen Christ
