Easter Monday Gratitude

Father in Heaven,

When your strength takes possession of me, I no longer say “Why are you cast down my soul?”

I feel the healing calm of your forgiveness; I give praise and gratitude for the gift of your only begotten Son.

Inspire me to yearn for you always, like the deer that yearns for running streams, until you satisfy every longing in heaven.

My dear risen Jesus,

You are with the Father now, as it should be. The price is paid, the gift given. It is now for me to claim my place with you.

Help me to be ever focused … to bring your love into all that I do, honoring you with my life on this earth, pleasing you all my days.

Let me walk and talk with you daily, to have you enter my mind, heart, body and soul.

I am yours – a lump of clay – mold me into what you deemed from my beginnings, when you knit me in my mother’s womb.

i will praise you all the days of my life. For I am yours and you are mine. Alleluia, Alleluia.
