An Easter Prayer

The Message of Easter

“Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which you also stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”  

(I Corinthians 15:1-4)

The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave is the LORD’s declaration of victory over sin and death.

All who have been saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin “have been born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” (I Peter 1:3)

  • Hope ( “confident expectation” ) for the forgiveness of sin
  • Hope ( “confident expectation” ) for eternal life
  • Hope ( “confident expectation” ) for abundant living today

Today we praise the LORD for the work that He has accomplished for His glory and our good through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of His Son.

Our prayer and desire is that you will know the Son whose resurrection we celebrate.
