Lord, on this day of waiting and watching, when we embrace the uncomfortable silence between the sadness of the darkest day and the dawn of resurrection light and victory, help us in our waiting to be still as we anticipate the victory to come.
Lord Jesus on this Resurrection Day we give thanks for the hope that we have in Your resurrection and we celebrate Your victory over death and the powers of darkness. We pray that this Easter people across Scotland will come to know this resurrection hope for themselves.
