(Click picture to listen!)    


Lord God, Almighty and everlasting Father, it is You who has brought us in safety to this new day. 

Preserve us with Your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, but be obedient to Your will and ways. 

Help us Lord, to not be overcome by adversity, but by Your strength and direction fulfill all of Your purpose in us. 

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


The Lord’s Prayer  (Click link to listen then close song page to return)

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

Almighty God, 

You have set before us the Way of Jesus, but we often try to find our own path. 

We ask for Your help to repent when we go astray and turn back from our sin to Your Way. 

Come Holy Spirit to guide us in Your wisdom and be our companion on this journey of faith. 

In the name of Jesus Christ, who is our Savior.  Amen.

SCRIPTURES ~  Matthew 28:5 NIV

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the

Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb,

rolled back the stone and sat on it.


3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes

were white as snow.


4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and

became like dead men.

5 The angel said to the women,

“Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

8 So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

Oh, Father God!  

We have been down paths that we thought were dead ends, yet You, Oh Lord, rescue us.  

We have experienced things that we thought would never heal, yet You, Lord, heal us. 

We have been scared, afraid and paralyzed by evil, and yet You, Oh Lord, protect us.  

Thank you that we know now, "The Lord lives!"  

Blessed be My Rock, My Redeemer, My Comforter and My Friend!  

Blessed be the God of My Salvation whose Spirit lives within me!Thank You Jesus!  Amen.
