This is the Easter Collect, the special prayer for Easter Sunday.
It reminds us that we have a sense of struggle because the “old order” is not able to fix life, only to show where it is wrong.
We need a Saviour, an act of love on the cross and then an act of power in breaking free from the tomb.
When we believe in Jesus, we have that promise too, that we will face God and be “dead to sin and alive to you in Jesus Christ”.
Then we will reign with Jesus in glory.
Lord of all life and power, who, through the mighty resurrection of your Son, overcame the old order of sin and death to make all things new in him: grant that we, being dead to sin and alive to you in Jesus Christ, may reign with him in glory; to whom with you and the Holy Spirit be praise and honour, glory and might, now and in all eternity.
Thank you , Revd KC
(previous) Update from the Revd KC
As before, we are allowed to meet together for church services in this lockdown, using face masks, hand gel and keeping 2m distance. However, many churches have decided that the best way to be safe is to close for these few winter weeks.
– Bampton will continue to hold worship at 11.00am on Sundays. Morebath and Huntsham will run one service a month – do check the “Service times” section to see which service is running.
– Private prayer in church can be arranged, contact your church warden.
We are praising God for the different vaccines becoming available; for those who are being invited to be inoculated and those involved in health care.
We are praying for those who are isolating, who are in hospitals and care homes and of course, for those who are grieving.
