Easter Prayer for Renewal

Lord, send me a surprise.
One that catches me off guard
and makes me wonder.
Like Easter.

Send me a Resurrection
when everything looks dead and buried.
Send me light
when the night seems too long.

Send me Spring
when the cold and frozen season
seems endless

Send me an idea
when my mind is empty.
Send me a thing to do
when I am just waiting around

Send me a new friend
when I am alone.
Send me peace
when I'm afraid.

Send me a future
when it looks hopeless.
Send me Your Resurrection
when I die, Jesus

--Rev. Dr. Herbert Brokering
