Our prayer this day, the Fifth Sunday of Easter
Lord, we seek to remain in You. Remain in us for we can not bear any fruit with You.
We praise you, Lord, in our hearts as well as in the assembly of Your people. Out of our awe and respect for You, we fulfill my vows. In our own experiences, we have seen the goodness of Lord as well as heard His words spoken to our hearts and our lives. As your disciples, we seek to emulate Paul whose love was not only expressed in word or speech but in deed and truth as well. Might we, like Paul, no matter what our conditions, speak out boldly in the name of the Lord.
May we keep Your commandments, Lord, and do what pleases You. May our lives bear witness that we believe in the power of the name of Jesus Christ. For this, our souls come to life. May our lives invite our descendants into service of the Lord, may coming generations through all the ends of the earth be told of Your love and grace and remember and turn to You. <image source>
