A Prayer for Easter 2020

10th Apr 2020

Our loving heavenly Father, this Easter season we find ourselves in a world gripped with anxiety and fear, where pandemic illness confronts us each day with the great issues of life and death. Yet, we come in confidence to you the living God, the Creator, the God who rules and reigns over all things, and who provides for our every need.

We confess our concerns for family members who are ill or feeling isolated at this time, and for others working in the frontline of medical care or in the emergency services.

Yet we are thankful that your word tells us to cast all our anxieties on You because You care for us.

Father, at this Easter time, lead us to place our trust in Jesus Christ your Son. By his death on the cross He has taken the guilt of our sins upon Himself and suffered their judgement. By His resurrection from the dead He has overcome sin’s penalty of death and given to all who trust Him the promise and assurance of everlasting life. We praise You, O God, that our living Saviour will always be with us and hear our prayers.

So, we pray that in Your mercy this distressing time of coronavirus epidemic will soon come to an end. Grant us peace in our hearts and faith each day to trust in You, our Almighty God, who holds the future in Your hands.

In Jesus name we pray.
