Mighty God, in whom we know the power of redemption, you stand among us in
the shadows of our time. As we move through every sorrow and trial of this
life, uphold us with knowledge of the final morning when, in the glorious
presence of your risen Son, we will share in his resurrection, redeemed
and restored to the fullness of life and forever freed to be your people.
