A Prayer to Pray This Easter
The celebration of Easter cannot be dampened or drowned out by the COVID-19 pandemic. You are not surprised by it, and You know what tomorrow will bring. Help us to remember Your goodness, and the truth of Your promises, amidst the fear and unknown days we are traversing now. Remind us to bring our fear and worry to You, and trust You to carry us, sustain us, heal us, provide for us, and be with us …always. Father, You don’t shame us for feeling scared and alone, but You are apt to remind us You are here with us.
Bless us, this Easter. Keep us healthy and heal all of those infected by the pandemic virus. Heal, cure, and stop it’s spread.
In Jesus’ powerful name we pray, Amen.
God’s plan was always forgiveness, and He accomplished it through His Son, Jesus Christ. The perfect work no one else was fit to perform, Christ executed. Died, buried, and risen from the dead, Jesus sits at the right hand of God, interceding for us in prayer, guiding us by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. No evil can minimize the gospel, nor stop it. “Jesus rose to prove that God is sovereign even over the worst ever in the world (Acts 2:23),” explains John Piper.
