Prayer for Easter 2013

We had 40 days to

prepare our hearts–

we know the story and know

the moment is coming.

 

But Your first disciples

were ill-prepared,

caught off-guard.

by the wonder

of  Your resurrection.

 

There was no spectacle

that Sunday morning.

You chose those

on the margins

to show yourself to:

women and Galilean

fishermen.  The ‘experts’

were confounded.  The crowds

did not see.

 

And we who prepare–

the ones that think we know–

miss the surprise

and the wonder

of an empty tomb,

death defeated

our King triumphant.

 

Capture our hearts

with wonder!

Fill us with your

Resurrection joy!

Death  where is your victory?

Where, O death, is your sting?

Jesus our King was dead, now alive!

And we with Him!
