We pray for the Easter morning earthquake/ to shake up the Church /to become the true sign of salvation for all./ We pray to the Lord.
We ask that very soon/ the Churches of East and West would celebrate Easter together every year/ as we do today/ giving the world the witness of unity and reconciliation./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for the Christ of Easter morning to enlighten minds lost in ignorance,/ power abuse,/ lies and pride./ We pray as well for those throughout the world who are baptized at Easter,/ and for Christians whose lives are threatened/ We pray to the Lord.
We pray at Easter for the healing of the Holy Land/ and for everyplace where there is poverty,/ hatred,/ bitterness and violence./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for those who live without joy at Easter; / refugees,/ the homeless poor,/ those who are active in addictions/ or who are suffering painful losses./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray blessings at Easter for our families and friends,/ for the sick and the frail./ We pray too for those who have died since last Easter,/ mindful of loved ones deceased and those who are left un-mourned./ We pray to the Lord.
