Welcome to you, in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Invocation - Inviting the Lord to be with us here.

O Lord, we know that You are everywhere,
And nothing happens that You cannot see,
But even so, we pray that You will come
And join with us directly at this time.
We now will offer up our praise to You,
And we do much desire to have You here.
In Jesus' holy name we pray, Amen.

CHRIST, THE LORD, IS RISEN TODAY - by Charles Wesley, 1707-1788 -
Public Domain

"CHRIST, the Lord, is risen to-day,"
Sons of men and angels say!
Raise your joys and triumphs high:
Sing, ye heavens; thou earth, reply.

Love's redeeming work is done;
Fought the fight, the battle won:
Lo! the sun's eclipse is o'er,
Lo! he sets in blood no more!

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Christ hath burst the gates of hell:
Death in vain forbids his rise,
Christ hath opened Paradise.

Lives again our glorious King!
Where, O death, is now thy sting?
Once he died our souls to save;
Where's thy victory, boasting grave

Soar we now where Christ hath led,
Following our exalted Head:
Made like him, like him we rise,
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies.

King of glory! Soul of bliss!
Everlasting life is this,
Thee to know, thy power to prove,
Thus to sing, and thus to love.

The Lord's Prayer

The Lord, Himself, taught us to pray like this . . .

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.

Source: Book Of Common Prayer, based on Matthew 6:9-13

Prayer4You - "For Patience"

NOTE: When you read this prayer, try to imagine hearing my voice as I speak
it to you. In this way, the prayer is reactivated, and it is the same
as if I were actually praying for you at that moment.
(Just like television prayers are reactivated when you watch
them, although the videotape may have been shot years before.)

Sometimes you feel that all is lost and gone;
You feel it is no use to carry on;
You cannot see the light that lies ahead.
I pray that you have patience at these times,
And know the Lord is working while you wait,
As after Jesus died upon the cross,
They didn't know that He would rise again.

Scriptures And Teachings - "The Resurrection Of Jesus Christ"


The Resurrection Of Jesus Christ


Now on the first day of the week Mary Mag'dalene came to
the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the
stone had been taken away from the tomb.
So she ran, and went to Simon Peter and the other
disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them,
"They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not
know where they have laid him."
Peter then came out with the other disciple, and they went
toward the tomb.
They both ran, but the other disciple outran Peter and
reached the tomb first;
and stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying
there, but he did not go in.
Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the
tomb; he saw the linen cloths lying,
and the napkin, which had been on his head, not lying with
the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself.
Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also
went in, and he saw and believed;
for as yet they did not know the scripture, that he must
rise from the dead.
Then the disciples went back to their homes.
But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept
she stooped to look into the tomb;
and she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of
Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet.
They said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said
to them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do
not know where they have laid him."
Saying this, she turned round and saw Jesus standing, but
she did not know that it was Jesus.
Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom do
you seek?" Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to
him, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you
have laid him, and I will take him away."
Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned and said to him in
Hebrew, "Rab-bo'ni!" (which means Teacher).
Jesus said to her, "Do not hold me, for I have not yet
ascended to the Father; but go to my brethren and say to
them, I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my
God and your God."
Mary Mag'dalene went and said to the disciples, "I have
seen the Lord"; and she told them that he had said these
things to her.
On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the
doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the
Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them,
"Peace be with you."
When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his
side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the
Father has sent me, even so I send you."
And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said
to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you
retain the sins of any, they are retained."
Now Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin, was not
with them when Jesus came.
So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord."
But he said to them, "Unless I see in his hands the print
of the nails, and place my finger in the mark of the
nails, and place my hand in his side, I will not believe."
Eight days later, his disciples were again in the house,
and Thomas was with them. The doors were shut, but Jesus
came and stood among them, and said, "Peace be with you."
Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here, and see my
hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side; do
not be faithless, but believing."
Thomas answered him, "My Lord and my God!"
Jesus said to him, "Have you believed because you have
seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet
Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the
disciples, which are not written in this book;
but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is
the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may
have life in his name.
