Easter Prayer

Risen Christ,

when darkness overwhelms us may your dawn beckon.

When fear paralyses us may your touch release us.

When grief torments us may your peace enfold us.

When memories haunt us may your presence heal us.

When justice fails us may your anger ignite us.

When apathy stagnates us may your challenge renew us.

When courage leaves us may your spirit inspire us.

When despair grips us may your hope restore us.

And when death threatens us may your resurrection light lead us.

Amen.

Annabel Shilson-Thomas/CAFOD
