Prayer of the Day and Readings

For the week of April 5-11, 2021

You may use this resource (content also below) for your home devotional life. Scripture readings for each day flow from the Sunday readings, and prepare us for the following Sunday. You may use the Prayer of the Day as a daily centering prayer.

Prayer of the Day

God of mercy, we no longer look for Jesus among the dead, for he is alive and has become the Lord of life. Increase in our minds and hearts the risen life we share with Christ, and help us to grow as your people toward the fullness of eternal life with you, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
