Gleanings: A Good Easter Prayer

Several days ago, Richard Rohr’s daily meditation was this prayer….

Loving God, we love how You love us. We love how You free us. We love what You have given and created to surround us. Help us to recognize, and to rejoice in, what has been given, even in the midst of what is not given. Help us not to doubt all that You have given us, even when we feel our very real shortcomings. We thank You for the promise and sign of Your love in the Eternally Risen Christ, pervading all things in the universe, unbound by any of our categories of logic or theology.

We offer You our lives back in return. We offer You our bodies, our little lives, our racing minds and restless hearts into this one wondrous circle of Love that is You. My life is no longer just about me, but it is all about YOU.

    Hello Pastor Steve —
    Thanks for the beautiful Easter prayer — or anytime prayer for Easter people. Deep stuff — profound matter! Must keep it at hand for a daily offering.
    Yours in Christ,
