An Easter Prayer
Of all of God's gifts
shows us our fate
Forgiven we will rise
And pass through Heaven's gate
The sacrifice of a Son
And through His resurrection
Eternal life we have won
That the love of God
Inside your heart
God Bless You!
A Prayer of Thanks - an Easter Prayer
by Max Lucado
Heavenly Father, thank you and give me courage to live You. Amen sending your Son to earth as a baby so many years ago. Thank you that He paid the punishment my sins by dying on the cross. And thank you that He rose again to prove that death was truly defeated. I place my trust in You to be my Savior. Guide me through the dark times of my life
THANK YOU, LORD,
for the gift of Your love.
May I be a shining
example of that love to others.
How wonderful, how marvelous, is Your love, Jesus! To think that You were willing to go through that for me!
What a day of rejoicing that must have been when You rose and realized it was all over--You had won the victory! You had accomplished Your mission. You had made the way for the world to be saved. You had gone through the horrors of Hell and death for us, and it was over.
You arose in victory, joy, liberation, and freedom from the hands of evil men, never to have to go through that again--and You did it all to spare us the same. Now we can say with the apostle Paul, "O death, where is your sting? O Hades [grave], where is your victory?" (1 Corinthians 15:55-57).
As I think of the seemingly terrible defeat that You suffered and how it resulted in such a tremendous victory, it fills me with wonder and gives me such hope and peace. Surely You and Your love will see me through whatever troubles may come my way, from now till eternity! Amen.
