A Prayer of Dependence

Eternal God,

the light of the minds that know you,

the joys of the hearts that love you,

and the strength of the wills that serve you;

grant us so to know you, that we may truly love you,

and so to love you, that we may fully serve you,

whom to serve is perfect freedom,

in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

An Easter Prayer

Living God, you are the giver of life

and in Jesus Christ you offer us new life.

Fill us with your Holy Spirit

to strengthen our faith,

increase our hope

and inspire our love.

We ask this in the name

of our risen saviour. Amen.
