A Prayer of Illumination for Easter
by Mark Roeda
Your Word is life;
we are merely punctuation.
Do not allow apathy to ball us up into periods,
Or skepticism to bend us into a question marks.
Instead, as with Mary at the tomb,
As with Thomas in the locked room,
May an encounter with your gospel
Stretch us into holy exclamation points
Giving you glory and praise.
In Jesus’ name, the Word made flesh.
I wish you all a very happy and Blessed Easter!
