Prayer for Easter Monday

Father, help us to break out of our ruts and live a life worthy of your son's sacrifice!  No more boring religious routine!

This Easter Monday help us to make it real. As we put away those colorful plastic eggs, and snack on the leftover candy, help us to not put You away until next year too. Help us to live a NEW LIFE!

I'm not talking about being suffocated by a bunch of new rules, but living large for You. We are so grateful for the depths that You went to love us, we can't help but let it overflow. Show us who you want us to help, show us how you want us to live, and show us who you want us to tell about our Easter experience. -In Jesus' name, Amen.

"Jesus told her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me WILL LIVE, even after dying. Everyone who LIVES IN ME and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?" (John 11:24) 

YES!  I believe.  You?

Prayer to Trust God

Father, we want to know You better.  We want to be closer.  We want to be free from worry and anxiety about our future. 

This Easter, purify us Lord, give us a fresh new start in trusting that You have our best interests in mind, and by sticking close to You and following Your instructions it will all turn out okay.  

Your word says, "...he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for" (1 John 5:14-15).  

Lord, I look forward to experiencing a deeper relationship with You, since I know this request pleases You, I know it will come to pass.  I can't wait.  -In Jesus' name, Amen.
