Alleluia, an Easter prayer — Christian Aid, UK

A worship resource from Christian Aid UK

 

Christ our life,
You are alive in the beauty of the earth,
In the rhythm of the seasons,
In the mystery of time and space,
Alleluia.

Christ our life,
You are alive in the tenderness of touch,
In the heartbeat of intimacy,
In the insights of solitude,
Alleluia.

Christ our life,
You are alive in the creative possibility of the dullest conversation,
The dreariest task,
The most nerve-racking event,
Alleluia.

Christ our life,
You are alive to offer new creation
To every unhealed hurt,
To every deadened place,
To every damaged heart,
Alleluia.

You set before us a great choice.
Therefore we choose life.
The reality of resurrection soars and surges through the whole creation.
This is grace,
Dying we live.
Therefore let us live.
Alleluia.
