Scriptures: Psalm 118:17-24; Luke 24:1-12
Prayer of the Day: Lord Jesus Christ, you burst the tomb winning for us an eternal triumph over sin and death forever and ever. Let the good news of Easter call us now to live no longer under the dominion of death, but in the light of life eternal until the news permeates our homes, our communities, our nation, and our world; through Jesus Christ, our Lord who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Scriptures: Psalm 2:1-2, 7-11; Mark 15:16-39
Prayer of the Day: Lord of heaven and earth, your one and only Son came into the world to free humanity from sin and death.  Through his sacrificial death on the cross of Calvary he revealed his true identity to those who would see. Give us faith to see and know that Jesus is Lord, and to tell the world the good news of his life, death, and resurrection from the dead for humanity’s sake.  Let us proclaim, “He truly is the Son of God,” to a hurting world and may all people come to know your abiding grace and mercy.  We pray this in Jesus’ holy name.  Amen.

Scriptures: Psalm 22:22-28; John 18:33-19:16
Prayer of the Day: Ever-living God, nothing in this world can take away your strength and might.  You are the source of all life and goodness.  Grant that we would cling to the cross of Jesus and truly appreciate his sacrifice for us.  Transform our hearts so that we might follow in the ways of Christ, loving our enemies, praying for those who hate us, and doing good to those who persecute us.  It is only through your help and guidance that we can even think of imitating Christ.  It is in his holy and precious name we pray.  Amen.

Scriptures: John 3:1-18
Prayer of the Day: Gracious God, you are the source of all faith and hope.  Grant us the power of your Holy Spirit that we would be filled with a deep, abiding faith in Christ Jesus.  Help us to follow him in all that we do and to be open to the world about our trust in him. Let us seek his life and love just as you seek us and call us into a relationship with you and our neighbors.  All this we pray in the name of Jesus who is the Life of the Word.  Amen.

Scriptures: John 18:1-14
Prayer of the Day: Almighty Lord, let us be ones who seek you in faith that your light and life would fill us with peace, joy, and hearts to serve others.  Grant that our words and actions would give glory to your holy name so that those who do not know Jesus would hear his name and respond to his call on their lives.  Let us not respond to our enemies with harsh words or violence, but rather reply in love as Jesus did.  You alone can form and shape our lives for your divine purposes.  All this we pray in Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
