Loving, Spirit-filled, God-fearing church, sharing the 3 angels' message and the soon return of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Please keep the reality of Jesus’ resurrection ever before us, Father. Keep us believing it and proclaiming it. “I serve a risen Savior; he’s in the world today.” And His emerging from the grave means that Mom and Dad will do the same soon; all the departed people I love and mourn are simply on the other side of a tissue curtain that can now so easily be torn aside by our mighty King.
Please help us also to comprehend the unity we have with all fellow Christians who confess this same truth. Despite the significance of our denominational creeds and our important distinctive doctrines, the glory of Jesus coming back to life knits us all together into one global body. Please give us a real sense of that shared hope this Easter weekend.
In Jesus’ name, Amen!
