A prayer for the end of Lent and the beginning of Eastertide.

God, do we remember the lessons, the insight we gained during the season of Lent? To this day, do we bring new intentionality, deeper spiritual longings, and a commitment to service and justice; or, do the fleeting celebrations of Easter mark the beginning of our return to a pre-Lenten state of being? God help us remember the lessons we’ve learned during this Lenten season. Help us continue the practices of faith that have formed us this season; and, may we celebrate this Eastertide with renewed understanding of spirit and truth, especially as we meditate on Jesus’ resurrection. In your holy name, we pray. Amen.
