Prayers of Adoration
Risen Lord, Rabbouni, it is you!
You are here, you are with us again!
This is something so extraordinary we never believed could happen.
We saw you crucified and buried.
We have been bereft these last days as we thought we had lost you,
that all hope was gone,
that the persecutors had succeeded,
that the powers of establishment and the authorities had triumphed.
We thought that our vision for a new way was lost and we were alone.
But you are here ! You have risen!
You have done what we thought was impossible and we see you again!
You will meet us in our homes and in our work,
You will travel with us on our journeys big and small,
You will love and support us in our joys and fears.
You will lead us and show us the way.
You are with us!
We will go and tell the others. Hallelujah! Amen
