Eternal God, today, we remember that when all seemed lost, you appeared before us in a new way. When hope was gone, you resurrected it. When your presence seemed to be buried, you resurrected it. When Life laid beneath the ground, you resurrected it. And so, we rejoice in your power to endure and in your spirit that remains. Amen.
A prayer after reading Ezekiel 37:1-14 O God, when death seems more real to us than resurrection, Lead us to the messengers who can speak to your life-giving Spirit And breathe new life into any dry bones we might have. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
May we know and grow in your transforming love.
