Prayer 453- Holy Saturday
Lord Jesus, you are our all in all. You are our food and our drink, O Christ, a fountain overflowing with every blessing of love and peace in a cross-shattered world.
O Savior, by your sacrifice, knit together our scattered peoples into one Body and one Blood through our one hope in your resurrection. Dying, you destroyed death, Lord Christ, and have pulled down the prison of sin and darkness, and called us to step forth into your light. Lead us in paths of holiness and righteousness as people who bear your name, so that all may see that You are the light of the world.
Let your victory on the cross bring forth a new creation, and let that creation begin within our hearts. We pray that your victorious right hand be a hand of healing and of blessing placed upon those we now name.
