Today we lift up hands of gratitude to You.
In times of challenge help us to seek You always and be grateful for life,
During our Lenten sacrifice teach us to know the enormous sacrifice You made for us on the cross so that we could be free of the burdens of life.
Teach us to put our stress, panic and fears at the foot of the cross.
During Holy Week help us to increase our prayer and reflection time so that we can walk the way of the cross with You.
Help us to stay awake with You as You faced the burden of our sin.
Come Holy Spirit, heal our brokenness and teach us to submit to You as we rest in Your arms of peace.
This week we ask for a special blessing on the people of the Parish of the Resurrection: Altino Couto, Anna Telela, Brian Richardson, Chihera, Chipo, Chris Busschau, Collette Drewes, Didi Tomsett, Estelle Jacquet, Fatima & Sieraaj Haffejee, Gail Solomon, Gillian Green, Goodwill Ntamehlo, Inez Braford, Lesley-Anne & Caitlin Culhane, Luzia Bento, Manfred Sussmann, Marilyn, Mary-Anne Alho, Olivia Tanyanyiwa, Pierre Kedziersk, Quinton, Renatus Marol, Simon van Wyk, Sister Notburga, Tania Noach and Yvonne Mupenda.
