Lord, Help me to see Your guiding hand each day.  Reveal Your risen 
presence to me as You come to me in Holy Communion. Let my heart
burn with love for You as You speak to me in the scriptures. Keep
alive in me the joy of this season that always and everywhere the
Easter alleluia may arise as a hymn of glory to Your name. Amen
