Jesus, Lord, don't let the fear of death overpower us. And don't let the loss of our 
Loved ones cause us to doubt Your power to "Easter" everybody. Remind us, Lord, 
That You have the last words over death. You are risen! You are not "among the dead." 
Neither are we. We shall live forever in Your triumphant love. Amen.
