We are victors through Christ who says: “Whatever happens with you, “Nevertheless, I am with you always.” And now unto him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy; to the only wise God our Saviour be glory and majesty, dominion and power both now and forever. AMEN HYMN 381 “This Joyful Eastertide” PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE (Intercessions) Risen Lord Jesus make your life-giving resurrection power known to all who this day especially need you. Those who feel cut off from you Those burdened by their sins or their worries, or their heavy responsibilities Those who feel that the joy has gone out of their lives, whatever the reason Those burdened with illness, or age, and those who cannot care for themselves Those who care for others, especially those who day in and day out must respond to the many demands for the well-being of others Those living in fear, those who doubt, those who just can’t cope with life Those who are close to death, and those who mourn the loss of one dearer than life itself. Those who feel the burden of their guilt. Those in poverty, all refugees, the hungry and the homeless Those who yearn for broken relationships to be mended May all know You and the power of your healing, your resurrection love, Lord Jesus, even though some may know pain, anguish, affliction and misery may they discover the fellowship of your suffering and experience your victory, and your peace. You who are King of all Kings and Lord of all Lords, Our Risen Redeemer, to whom and through whom we pray on this resurrection day Amen. THE LORD’S PRAYER
