People: in all the places of our lives!
 Leader: We rejoice and thank you for the life of your son, resurrected by the power of your loving, vibrant Spirit. Let this same Spirit fill us, that we may know the truth of resurrection

PRAYER OF INVOCATION
(said out loud, but muted)
Loving God,
In the midst of deep sorrow and grief
the resurrected Christ spoke Mary’s name.
Then her eyes were opened. You call each of us by name, and our hearts are opened.
Come this Easter morning, we pray,
and fill us with the joy of the resurrection, that our lives may also be renewed in hope and glory.
In Christ we pray, Amen.

CLOSING PRAYER
(Said out loud, but muted)
O God, you have become our light and our salvation –
let these gifts open the gates of joy
to all who hunger and thirst for your holy presence
on this and every day.
May they bear the gifts of Alleluia which we hold so dear,
and give away with great joy.
We pray in the name of our Risen Savior, Jesus the Christ! Amen.
