Prayer Focus

Jesus said to her ‘Mary!’ She turned and said to him in Hebrew ‘Rabbouni’ which means teacher. Mary Magdalane went and announced to the disciples ’I have seen the Lord’.
John 20; 16 & 18a

When our faith
stands at the grave,
grieving
for a stone that’s rolled away,
forgive us.

When our faith
is short of
understanding
though the truth is there to see,
forgive us.
When our faith,
beset by doubt, sees
no further
than an empty tomb today,
forgive us.

Bring to mind
the cry of Mary,
‘I have seen the Lord!’
and grant us faith to believe!

Hymn 407 Verse 3

With Mary on this day
we join our voices, praising
the God of Jesus raising
and sing the triumph of his love amazing.
