Prayer of Invocation | Easter Sunday (Year C)

The following prayer is by Andy James and Teri Peterson via LiturgyLink.Net.

We go to your tomb, O Christ,
expecting to be met by the cold hardness of stone,
sealing the death of hope.
Instead, we find that the stone has been rolled away
and you are not there!
Help us to encounter your risen presence everywhere we go
and live in the joy of Easter morn each and every day,
through Christ our risen Lord.
Alleluia! Amen.

Prayer for Illumination (2) | Easter Sunday (Year C)

The following prayer for illumination is by Scott Cervas via LiturgyLink.Net.

Holy God,
remove the stones that block the portals of our minds…
shine your light so that it may take over the darkness within…
and fill our thoughts with your perfect vision for creation
so we may go, and tell, and be, and do.
Amen.
