Alleluia! He is risen!

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness — on them light has shined (Isaiah 9:2)

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it (John 1:5)

Yesterday I shared that church leaders in Hereford were calling people to prayer. They’ve also recorded messages for Easter which have been incorporated into a film, which will be released at noon today. As an Easter treat, therefore, you’ll be getting a second blog from me later today with a link to the video. I’ll also share it on our Facebook page.

In these strange times in which we find ourselves, I hope you are able to experience the blessings of Easter even though we remain in the waiting place. Jesus is alive and is with us.

A prayer by Nick Fawcett (used with permission)

Sovereign God, you turned the darkest of night into the brightest of days through the resurrection of your Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Come now into our darkness, into the night-time of suffering and sickness, of doubt and despair, of hurt and heartbreak, of injustice and evil, of violence and hatred, of fear and death. May your new day dawn here, and the light of Christ blaze to your glory, as we share his resurrection life, and rejoice in the victory he has won. In his name we pray. Amen.
