My Easter Prayer

Heavenly Father,

I confess a life lived

So rowdy and raucous,

That I too often miss Your call;

So self-centered,

That I am too often callous to Your touch.

Help me, Father, on this Holy day to

So empty myself of sin

That You may find room in me for Your purpose.

On this day I pray that You

Fill me so full of Your patience

That I am relieved of my impulse.

Fill me with such gratitude for Your grace

That my presumption can find no room.

I pray that You so strengthen my faith in You, Father,

That my fear of life

Withers and dies in the face of Your love.

In Christ’s name I pray.
