EASTER PRAYER TO SHARE WITH YOUR CHILD

Dear Lord, thank you for our faces – our eyes, our ears, our mouths, our noses. As we gather together in your presence, help us to see with our eyes the joy of Easter in each other’s faces; to speak out with our mouths the story of Jesus being raised to life; to hear with our ears the story of Easter in a fresh way. And in the same way that we have noses right in the middle of our faces, help us to keep you in the center of our celebrations this morning! Amen
