The following prayer is by Andy James and Teri Peterson via LiturgyLink.Net. We go to your tomb, O Christ, expecting to be met by the cold hardness of stone, sealing the death of hope. Instead, we find that the stone has been rolled away and you are not there! Help us to encounter your risen presence everywhere we go and live in the joy of Easter morn each and every day, through Christ our risen Lord. Alleluia! Amen.
