An Easter Prayer

Image result for images of christ enthroned

Father in Heaven, on this day, the day between Good Friday and Easter, we proclaim that Jesus Christ Our Lord was dead and laid in a tomb, prior to His Resurrection. We proclaim these things as truth, now and forever.

Lord, this is an evil age. We have important people, even religious leaders, even leaders in the Church, making Christ equal with other gods who are no gods, and making unbelief equal with faithfulness to Jesus Christ. And because we see as men see, the things we see make even many of your saints downhearted.

We are your people, the sheep of your hand. Make us also, O Lord, your oxen, strong to labor.

Grant power to this Easter holiday, power to enthrone Christ, whose right it is to rule Creation: power to enthrone Him on the earth, and power to enthrone Him in our hearts. We cannot know when You, Father, will send your Son back to earth: that day, be it tomorrow or a thousand years from now, is known only to you. But Jesus’ throne can be set up in our hearts now.

O Lord Our God, whatever your timetable may be (for a thousand years in your sight is as a watch in the night), exalt Our Savior among the heathen, exalt Him in the earth: and let Him be exalted now, even now, in our hearts.

In Jesus’ name, amen.
