An Easter Prayer


The disciples leave the upper room enthused,

confident and full of hope.

So may our trials keep us strong,

our sorrows keep us human and our failures

keep us humble.

May our hope keep us happy and

our enthusiasm keep us looking forward.

May our faith banish depression,

our wealth meet our needs and our friends give us comfort.

And may we have, in the Risen Lord,

determination to make each day a little better than yesterday.
