O God, you have sent Jesus to call us into the unity of one flock. Through his life, death, and resurrection he has revealed your love for us and has freed us from the bondage of sin. Have mercy on us again and again. Help us to hear his voice and proclaim the message of the gospel with our lives. This we ask in the name of the Risen Saviour. Amen
O God, you gave Peter the wisdom and the largeness of heart to open the sheepfold of your Church to the Gentiles and to all who would believe in your word. Give us the vision and the generosity to remove the barriers that we place before those who seek to know and love you. Teach us how to share the fruits of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Amen.
Christ Jesus, your words are spirit and life; we long to follow you unreservedly. Through your resurrection, give us the grace to love and respect the gift of life each day, and to be open to the depths and heights of the new life to which you call us. Grant that someday we may live with you for all eternity. Amen
We pray for your transforming Resurrection Spirit, O Lord. We pray for transformation in our hearts and in our attitudes; for transformed lives; for transformed relationships; for transformed communities; for a transformation of society and the transformation of our world. We pray that all would be transformed according to the pattern of your kingdom, your reign, brought into being through Jesus your Son. Amen
O God, your love abounds in our lives and you are our help in time of need. As we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, bring new life to our churches and to each of us. Give us a hunger to know you better and zeal to do your will. We ask this through Jesus, our way. Amen
Christ Jesus, you fed your people in the desert and feed us with the bread of life. Let our celebration of your life death and resurrection fill our minds and hearts with zeal for the good of our earth. Help us to bring it your peace. This we ask in your name. Amen
