Prayer To The Risen Christ

Heavenly Father and God of mercy,
we no longer look
for Jesus among the dead,
for He is alive
and has become the Lord of life.
From the waters of death
you raise us with Him
and renew your gift of life within us.
Increase in our minds and hearts
the risen life
we share with Christ
and help us to grow as your people
toward the fullness of eternal life with you.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

~ From Christian Prayer: The Liturgy of the Hours,
