Resurrection Prayer by David Adam


I arise to life today


I arise to light and love


I arise to life today


Through the love of God above


I arise to life today


In the power of the creator adored   

                                                                                                         

I arise to life today 


Through Christ our risen Lord. 


I arise to life today


With energy for each hour


I arise to life today In holy spirit's power.


Christ risen in glory


Scatter the darkness form our path


Christ risen in glory


Lift the heaviness from our hearts


Christ risen in glory


Dispel the troubles from our minds


Christ risen in glory


Take the weariness from your world


And we will serve you in love,


In Joy and light and peace


Alleluia



Risen Christ come,


Raise the fallen,


Strengthen the weak,


Support the weary,


Give peace to the troubled,


Comfort the anxious


Uplift all who are down,


Give wholeness and healing,


Be with us now and forever,


Risen Christ come, now and forever Amen 




Prayer - Eritrea


Eritrean authorities continue to detain Christians without charge, while in prison they are denied



Bibles and prevented from practising their faith. In 2017 there were almost 3,000 religious prisoners,


in metal shipping containers and subjected to extreme tempretures. Eritrea has suffered a 30 year


war of independence, continuing tensions with Ethiopia and a repressive Marxist government.


Christian ministers are being forced by the government to join the army and many Christians have


fled the country, some going to Isreal, where they have encountered harsh treatment.


Call on the Lord on behalf of Eritrean Christians labouring under the yoke of persecution and


imprisonment, trusting that He 2 is concerned about their suffering” (Exodus 3:7) even if we do not


know the details. Pray that God will move the Eritrean government to respect the freedom of religion



in their country’s constitution. Pray for Eritrean believers who have fled the country; may find safe


havens where they can live safely and worship Christ freely.
