Easter Dinner Blessings

Holidays/ Celebrations

Introduction:

Easter dinner blessings are a beautiful way to say thanks to the Savior for His ultimate sacrifice for all mankind. The saddest day and gladdest day on earth were just three days apart and thank God for the joy of Easter and the blessed resurrection!

God of Glory

"God of glory,
the eyes of all turn to you
as we celebrate Christ's victory over sin and death.

Bless us and this food of our first Easter meal.
May we who gather at the Lord's table
continue to celebrate the joy of his resurrection
and be admitted finally to his heavenly banquet.

Grant this through Christ our Lord."

Gifts from Above

"Lord,

Thank You for the gift of HOPE
You gave us on Easter morning.
Because of You we know
That no problem is too difficult
And even death does not have power over us.

Thank You for the gift of JOY
You gave us when You were resurrected.
Because of you we know
That no matter how challenging life may be,
In the end we will rejoice again.

Thank you for the gift of LOVE
You gave us when You laid down Your life.
Because of You we know
That there is no sin too great to separate us
and we are incredibly valuable to You.

Thank You for the gift of LIFE,
You gave us when You left the tomb.
Because of Easter we know
this world is just the beginning
and we will spend forever in heaven with You.

We celebrate You, JESUS,
With hearts full of praise and gratitude
For who You are and all You've done for us!

Amen."

Resurrection Day Rejoicing

"God of life and death, we rejoice in the glory of Jesus' resurrection this day. Thank you for bringing all Christians new life in Him. Let the spirit of love and renewal continue in the lives of all who believe, that they might be changed in Your image and likeness, O God. May all who seek new life find it in You, this Easter and always, Amen."

Easter Joy

"God our Father, Creator of all, today is the day of Easter joy.

This is the morning on which the Lord appeared to those who had begun to lose hope and opened their eyes to what the scriptures foretold: that first He must die, and then He would rise and ascend into His Father's glorious presence.

By raising Christ your Son You conquered the power of death and opened for us the way to eternal life. Let our celebration today raise us up and renew our lives by the Spirit that is within us.

May the risen Lord breathe on our minds and open our eyes that we may know Him in the breaking of this bread;
that we may know Him in the fellowship of the Spirit;
that we may know Him in the love of our family and friends;
and that we may know Him as we follow Him each day in His risen life.

We ask that you grant these things through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

Amen."

Max Lucado

"Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son to earth as a baby so many years ago. Thank you that He paid the punishment for my sins by dying on the cross. And thank you that He rose again to prove that death was truly defeated. I place my trust in You to be my Savior. Guide me through the dark times of my life and give me courage to live for You. Amen
