Walk beside us, prayer for Third Sunday of Easter — Christian Aid, UK

A worship resource from Christian Aid UK for the Third Sunday of Easter, Year A

‘And he said to them, “What are you discussing with each other while you walk along?”  They stood still, looking sad.’

Luke 24:17

 

Walk beside us, risen Jesus
On the Emmaus road of life
On the journey of confusion
On the road of questions
On the way of disappointment
When we do not understand.

Walk beside us, risen Jesus
On the Emmaus road of life
In the guise of the stranger
In the unfamiliar traveller
In the unexpected guest
When we feel almost overwhelmed.

Walk beside us, risen Jesus
On the Emmaus road of life
Give us insights beyond our knowing
Give us a glimpse of your will at work
Give us strength to keep on keeping on
When our hope is almost gone.
Amen.
