Prayer for Sunday (Easter)

Today is Easter Sunday in the Western Christian traditions.

God, give us eyes to see
the beauty of the Spring,
And to behold Your majesty
in every living thing –
And may we see in lacy leaves
and every budding flower
The Hand that rules the universe
with gentleness and power –
And may this Easter grandeur
that Spring lavishly imparts
Awaken faded flowers of faith
lying dormant in our hearts,
And give us ears to hear, dear God,
the Springtime song of birds
With messages more meaningful
than man’s often empty words
Telling harried human beings
who are lost in dark despair –
‘Be like us and do not worry
for God has you in His care.’

(Helen Steiner Rice)

This Week’s Affirmation:

“I am filled with overflowing gratitude
for all the abundance and miracles in my life.”
