Prayer of the Week for Easter 16 April 2017

God of Easter and the giver of hope, we worship you.
You are indeed awesome and you shatter death.
The heavy stone was rolled away as it was no match for your strength
and so we come to you in trembling faith:
because you are God over all.
With thankful hearts full of joy we praise you for the gift of life –
even life after death promised us by his resurrection
which we celebrate this morning.
