Prayer of Easter Hope

Dear Father,

When we have lost someone we love, the world seems very dark. Sometimes we might feel that our world has ended, and it’s hard to turn round and glimpse any light ahead.
But you, Lord, know all about that, and you care.
You sent Jesus to overcome death and lead us into the light of his forgiveness and freedom - to new and eternal life.
Help us Lord, like Mary, to turn away from the darkness death wants to scare us with, and to reach out to you.
Help us to take courage, strength and confidence from the reality of Jesus’ resurrection.
He is alive and we are his. There is nothing to fear. All shall be well.
