Prayer

RISE UP IN ME, RISEN LORD

Risen One,

You descended into death

and to all those

death has held buried within .

Descend also into my depths,

down to all that is dead within me ,

and to everything that still waits for your life

and your light.

You have truly risen from the tomb

and you lead the dead into life,

those in darkness into light

and sinners to reconciliation

with the Father.

Rise up in me also.

from the tombs within me,

and raise up what is dead within me into life,

my unattractiveness into the loving gaze

and my guilt into the waiting arms

of the Father. Amen
