Easter Prayer

Dear Lord, risen Lord, merciful Lord
The Easter season is filled with your presence,  and we come to you in gratitude for the deep and abiding joy you offer us through the promise of your resurrection. Help us hear your call as did Mary Magdalene.  Teach us as you did the disciples at Emmaus.  Dispel our doubts as you did for Thomas.  And reveal yourself to us as you did to your friends from the shore of Lake Tiberius.  Make us good stewards of this Easter season.  Open our hearts and minds in a special way to the great mystery of your active presence in our lives,  and give us the courage to help others  discover your presence in their lives.  For you are the light of the world.  To you, Christ Jesus, be praise and glory! 
Amen. 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 
 

 

GOD SO LOVED HE GAVE

FROM A HEART OF GRATITUDE
WE GIVE OUR
TIME, TALENT & TREASURE

Everything we have and everything we are is a gift from God.
Stewardship is the ability to share our gifts of life – Time, Talent & Treasure with others, no strings attached and no conditions. We share these gifts out of our love for God and gratitude to Him.


“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
Matt 6:23
