Easter Prayer

This Easter prayer was created by Devanthree Pillay for the Easter festivities held at her school. The school like most, has students of diverse cultures and religions. The Easter prayer was written to highlight the significance of Easter to believers and non believers alike in a concise manner while giving thanks for the unconditional love of God over the Earth.

We hope that you will find it useful in your Easter events.

Father God, We are grateful for your love and mercy towards mankind. Thank you for sending your Son, Jesus, to die on the cross, so that we could be reconciled to you. Thank you that all our sins are now forgiven and we are redeemed from sin, sickness, disease and poverty. Thank you for giving us dominion and authority over every problem on earth. Although we are not exempt from trials and tribulations – we know that whenever it is Friday, Sunday is always on its way.

Thank you for your love.

In Jesus name, Amen

Another Easter Prayer

Alternatively, here’s another great prayer that can be used for your Easter event.

Father God, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

We are so thankful today, for your wonderful plan of redemption to reconcile mankind to yourself, by sending your Son to be the final sacrifice, to redeem us from sin, sickness and disease.

We thank you for the cross Lord. We thank you for your nail-pierced hands. We thank you for the crown of thorns that you wore to redeem us from addictions and the stripes you took upon your back that we may be healed.

Thank you for your blood that was shed to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Jesus, your name is power. 

We thank you for your love, grace and mercy.

Amen.
