I would like to share with you my husband, Wayne’s, resurrection prayer of blessing, which he wrote on Easter 2010, just a few hours just before he went to be with the Lord.
I bless you in the name of Christ, whose blood covers the doorpost of your life,
Whose death set you free from darkness,
and whose resurrection empowers you to glorify His name through bold acts of faith.
I bless you in the name of the One, who loves you with an everlasting love,
Who knows all your thoughts, catches ever tear, and hears every whisper.
The One who makes a way when there is no way, and brings streams in the midst of your desert.
I bless you with the peace of Christ that passes understanding,
and carries you up and over the obstacles of life.
The knowing that there is more than you can see,
and that in Christ you live and breathe and move and have your being.
I bless you with the resurrection power of Jesus,
that calls you to your place, unites you with fellow believers,
equips you for exploits and sends you forth with boldness and purpose.
May Jesus, the son God, the Christ, the Lamb that was slain for the sins of the world,
the Prince of Peace, the King of Kings, the One true God, who reigns and rules forever
be represented through your life, and glorified by your faith, love and obedience.
In the mighty and worth name of Jesus, Amen.
