Join us for communion worship this week as we continue to walk the Road to Emmaus with Jesus and the disciples. As you prepare for worship, I’ve included one of the prayers for this week.
We Proclaim the Resurrection
Jesus, our Risen Lord, we recall how you walked with the disciples in their grief and uncertainty on the road to Emmaus. Unable to believe what the women told them, they walked without hope, the light having gone out of the world.
But the tomb was empty! You were not there! How can such an amazing truth be hidden from our eyes?
Lord, we see what we want to see, only able to comprehend what we already know. How is it that after experiencing your miracles, we so easily fall back into our old expectations? Why do we rely on the wisdom of the world, which is foolishness to you?
Jesus, create in us the awe that expects a miracle. Let our grief and uncertainty become the channel to seeing you anew. Astound us with your presence and fill us with your love. Teach our hearts to burn with your Word so that we may believe it and live it in the world.
Let us proclaim the mystery of our faith:
Christ has died!
Christ has risen!
Christ will come again!
