A prayer at Eastertide

Risen Christ,

in the midst of grief and despair,

at the very point when all seemed lost

you stood in the midst of your friends in the fullness of your resurrection reality

and proclaimed your peace:

a peace that reorders and renews all things.

May the same peace find a home in us

and, at the urging of your Spirit,

may we be today and everyday

bearers of hope

and enablers of peace

in the power of your Name.


The Most Reverend Frank T. Griswold
XXV Presiding Bishop and Primate
The Episcopal Church, USA
