Eternal God, we confess that we do not always find life easy. May your presence in us be so strong today that our faith comes alive with meaning, power, and strength. Lift our eyes to the risen Christ who gives us courage to pick up our crosses to follow Him. Help us today to bring light to the dark places in our homes, community and country. Help us to bring hope where there is fear, compassion where there is empathy, and redemption where there is division and victory where people expect defeat. In the strong name of Jesus, Amen.
