An Easter Prayer

Easter Prayer

This is a very different Easter time for many of us across the world. Just like Jesus’s disciples after they had witnessed his death, we face uncertainty, fear and sorrow. Yet as we take time to pause and reflect, we shall unearth new treasures of Kingdom value. They will hold a fresh message, anointing and significance for us all. Everything changed the day when Jesus rose from death to eternal life. The same Spirit that released Christ from the grave is now available as a free gift to us all!

This Easter prayer film seeks to capture that truth, that miracle, and that promise. We hope that faith will arise within your hearts and God will hold you safe in your sorrows and lift your eyes unto heaven. We ask for unity to strengthen us all at this time and create new ground for God’s Kingdom to flow in fresh and amazing ways:

Here are the words to the prayer in this film:

Easter Prayer

Loving Lord, today we remember

the veil of darkness

transforming to the brightest light.

The most dreadful end

becoming the most beautiful beginning.

We remember with trembling hearts

the depths of despair

fading to reveal hope everlasting.

The curse of death

defeated by eternal life.

Today we remember with thankfulness

your willingness to be pierced for our sins.

We sing with abounding joy,

of your miraculous rise,

from death’s tomb to resplendent life.

Thank you for the promise of heaven

and your generous invitation of eternal life for all.

I Missed The Moment Song

As Christians we are asked to be the “Body of Christ”. This means we are called to work in close contact with others, to be the ones who engage with humanity at every level. This is a messy calling! It is not a setting apart from life, it’s about being called into participation! Every other Read More

Freedom in Grace

We wanted to share with you the inspiration behind a track that we’ve recently released called “Freedom in Grace”. About a year and a half ago, just before the pandemic hit, I felt God was speaking to me, and to the world, through Isaiah 40 “A Comfort to God’s People”: “Prepare the way of the Read More
