Easter 2022

This year, Easter Sunday falls on Sunday 17 April. Here we have compiled some resources and reflections that you might like to use in your personal devotions, your small groups, with family and friends, or as part of a church service on Easter Sunday or during the Easter season.

A very happy and joyous to you, from everyone at All We Can.

‘Easter is always the answer to ‘My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me!’’ Madeleine L’Engle, The Irrational Season.

Scripture

‘Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you.’ 1 Peter 1:3-4

Resurrection Prayers

Gracious God
You are the resurrection and the life
May we trust in the power of your spirit
And let us live for your glory
In Jesus’ name
Amen.

Loving God
This Easter Sunday, let us celebrate the resurrection of Jesus,
The Prince of Peace.
Let us share our celebration with loved ones,
Whether our communities gather in church rooms or zoom rooms,
Let us hold onto one another on this joyous day
And sing of the wonder of your love.
Amen.

Holy God
As spring brings new life,
We thank you for the eternal life that you offer.
As we break bread and drink wine,
We thank you for the sacrifice of Jesus.
As we read the Easter story,
We thank you for your love.
Amen.

God of resurrection and new life,
We are moved by the power of your love for us.
That you would die for us,
So that we would be invited to dwell in your presence forever.
As we seek to honour the sacrifice of Jesus,
Give us wisdom and humility.
Send us out of this place,
With the joy of Easter in on our tongue.
Let us worship your name,
So that all may hear.
Amen.
