Resurrection Day – Easter Sunday 2016 

Happy Easter! Today is one of the most important Christian holidays, when people celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus…Let us open in prayer..


We thank you this day for the resurrection of Your Son! This has given us new life and renewed hope. Help us to live as new people in pursuit of the Christian ideal. Grant us wisdom to know what we must do, the strength and will to want to do it, the courage to undertake it, the perseverance to continue to do it, and the power to complete it.

Jesus is the Resurrection

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.” John 11:25

“They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.” Luke 24:2-3

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Psalm 107

Friends, Easter Sunday is a Forgiving day, it is a day meant for you to forgive all the sins that have been done to you by others , forgiving all the bad things that have happened to you, Forgive the people who have done wrong by you. Forgive yourself, forgive situations and remember forgiveness sets you free!! So forgive and be happy with others on this day. Reaffirm your power to stand confidently in the Spirit of Resurrection!! Pray for God’s continued mercy and grace for your family, friends and loved ones. Seek forgiveness from the Lord for your sins. Pray the Holy Lord with poems, teaching, songs about Jesus and enjoy this day with Family and Friends.

A few of my favorite Easter quotes:

“A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.” -Mahatma Gandhi

“Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal, and new life.” -Janine di Giovanni

“God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.”-Saint Augustine

“God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with.”-BG

Friends, Family…You must lay a firm foundation with the bricks thrown at you in life….then build high and wide with forgiveness and pride! You see, with increased height comes a much better perspective to see and understand with! So find motivation in elevation and RISE! 

On This Holy Day…RISE in perspective and thought; May His Light Guide Your Path and Light your way! May His Love Grace Your Heart and allow you to forgive on this day…May His ultimate sacrifice strengthen your soul, and inspire you once again, knowing His love was so strong and will never end.

Happy Resurrection Day!
