Almighty God, you sent your son to us that we might have a way to live as Jesus did,
following his example. We continue to celebrate our Lord’s resurrection and ask that
you renew our spirit each week, help us to live the life you want for us, one of joy and
fulfillment. We seek to understand your word and live our lives in such a way that you
