An Easter Collect
Risen Lord, who conquered death and lives in glory, all honor and power and praise to you, our teacher, savior, and forerunner, who took upon yourself our punishment, but transcended the grave to lead us into eternal relationship with you and the Father through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Grant to us life like your life and let us enter into your heavenly kingdom, through you who reigns in glory forever and ever. Amen.
'But he said to them, "Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Look, there is the place they laid him.' - Mark 16:6
