Prayer for Easter Season: God of openness, of life and of resurrection / come into this Easter season and bless me. / Look around the tight, dead spaces of my heart / that still refuse to give you an entrance. / Bring your gentle but firm love / begin to life the layers of resistance / that hang on tightly deep inside of me. / Open, one by one, those places in my life / where I refuse to be overcome by surprise. / Open, one by one those parts of my heart / where I fight the entrance of real growth. / Open one by one those aspects of my spirit / where my security struggles with the truth. / Keep me open to the different and the strange. / Help me to accept the unusual and also the ordinary. / Never allow me to thread on others dreams / by shutting them out, closing them up / by turning them off or pushing them away. (Joyce Rupp).

Prayer: Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. / Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. / Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, / and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction.... / The chain reaction of evil - hate begetting hate, / wars producing more wars - must be broken, / or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation   (Dr Martin Luther King 1963)
