Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus
O God, on this Day of all days we bring You our grateful thanks.
How can we see what it means that You defeated human destructiveness?
How can we say how Your rising affects our apathy and disappointment?
Our hearts sing with praise for You, victorious Lord Jesus Christ.
The whole earth resounds with joy as it sees that death is not the end.
Our words will never be enough to thank You for abundant, eternal life!
Teach us to see this anxious world through eyes framed by courage.
Inspire us to see tomorrow with heart eyes—your dream coming true at last.
In this dead-end world, help us believe eternity’s dawn will change everything.
Until then, enable us to experience a moral resurrection above corrupt society.
When we’re overwhelmed with impossibilities, remind us of your power.
When we’re exhausted by everyday life, reenergize us by your Presence.
When we’re nearing despair, increase our faith in your promised bright future.
We are weak, but You are strong.
We are foolish, but You are wise.
We are mortal, but You are immortal.
We are limited, but You are infinite.
We are human, but You are divine.
We need your help—and we thank You for being there for us.
No matter the situation, the problem, or the trouble—You are always with us.
You are willing to receive us, redeem us, renew us, and ultimately resurrect us!
Satan thrilled at your apparent demise, claiming good riddance to goodness!
He was wrong—Life killed death, Love defeated hate, Holiness trumped sin.
The Lamb wins! And we will too!
We honor You, Father, for mercy—giving us the privilege of being your children.
We look forward to living with You in heaven, since your Son rose from the dead.
We anticipate living in a deathless, tearless, painless, sinless, endless home.
We have never seen You with our eyes, but we trust You with our heart.
Oh for grace to trust You more.
