*SPIRIT PRAYER
God of Power and Majesty:
       With the rising of the sun you have raised    Jesus Christ and delivered him and us
from death’s  destruction. We praise this bright day for all your gifts of new life.
Especially we thank you for all victories over sin and evil in our lives. . .
for loyalty and love of friends and family. . .
for the newborn, the newly baptized, and those now in your eter-nal home. . .
for the renewal of nature . . .
for the continuing witness of the church of Christ . . .

God of Eternity:
       you are present with us because of Christ’s rising from the dead, and you persist in
lifting us to new life in him. We bring to you our prayers for this world in need of
resurrection. Especially we pray for nations and peoples in strife. . .
for the poor and impoverished, at home and abroad. .  for those we know in particular
circumstances of distress. . .
for the diseased and the dying. . .
for all who follow the risen Christ . . . ;
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
