Pray with me:
God of all comfort, comfort your people we pray. Our best words ring hollow as we stand in the cemetery. But we remember that our Savior was once buried also. You know what it is to lose a Son, Father. So we trust you, Lord of the resurrection to give life to your servants through the awesome power of your risen Son. Help us to set up shop today at the entrance to an empty tomb. Then in the realization of our ultimate victory let us live this day, not just somehow, but triumphantly. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
