An Easter Prayer

Brian Young returns to the blog with a prayer he has written for Easter. Despite living with the challenges of autism, tourette syndrome, and obsessive compulsive disorder, Brian has a deep, vibrant, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Read his story here.

THE RISEN SAVIOR

THE TIME HAD COME FOR PROPHECY FULFILLED.
THE MESSIAH, A SAVIOUR, THE HOLY ONE.
TO BECOME THE GIFT, AS A LAMB, FROM OUR GOD.
THROUGH GRACE, WOULD THE WORLD SEE IT DONE.

ONLY ONE WEEK BEFORE KNOWING WHAT WAS TO COME.
HOSANNAS WERE SHOUTED AND PALMS WOULD APPEAR.
BUT JESUS HIMSELF, KNEW OF THE WHOLE PLAN.
AND HE WEPT FOR THOSE WHOSE HEARTS WOULD SHOW FEAR.

I KNOW IN HIS HEART, AS HE CRIED OUT IN PRAYER.
THAT HIS HUMAN PART HAD SAID, FATHER PLEASE.
IT IS HARD FOR ME TO SUBMIT IN THIS WAY.
BUT HIS LOVE FOR THE WORLD, YIELDED TO APPEASE.

SO UNTO GOLGOTHA, BEARING THIS CROSS.
THOUGH NOT A SIN IN HIS WHOLE LIFE WAS PROVED.
AND WHILE HE WAS DYING, A SINFUL ONE CAME.
RECOGNIZING THE TRUTH, AS THE EARTH MOVED.

SO GOD IN HIS INFINITE WISDOM WOULD SHOW.
IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO RECEIVE HIS GRACE.
FOR NO MATTER HOW DIRTY YOUR LIFE HAS BECOME.
YOU CAN BE LOVED AND FORGIVEN BY SEEKING HIS FACE.

THE TRUTH OF THIS SEASON GOES FURTHER STILL.
YES HE DIED AND WAS BURIED, IT IS TRUE.
IN THREE DAYS HE AROSE TO SHOW US THE WAY.
THAT ETERNAL LIFE CAN BE HAD FOR ME AND FOR YOU.

IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
