Don’t ever forget we are an Easter people!

CCI LogoHere is a part of the prayer I prayed during my morning devotions this Easter morning, and I want to share it with you…

Lord, I thank you for the empty tomb. I thank you that you conquered death–that you ultimately triumph over everything. Nothing can keep your will from happening, nothing can keep your Kingdom from advancing into its fullness. Lord, help us Christians never forget this.

So often, when we’re gathered in shrinking numbers, among an aging congregation, in a world that seems to becoming more secular every day, we forget that you win! We forget that you are all powerful and that you are the King of kings and the Lord of lords. When we hear reports of wars, injustice and tyranny, we forget that you are a God who is just, that you’re the Prince of Peace! Lord, when we are struggling, when we feel absolutely alone and hopeless, may we remember that you are our Good Shepherd, our Redeemer, our Hope. Lord, may we celebrate you as Easter people! May we shout “Hallelujahs!”
