Reading — Acts 12:1–17, Confession — Gracious God, we confess that we have not lived each day in the faith of Easter. We have been like the disciples, who saw life more in terms of the suffering of Calvary than in terms of the Resurrection that followerd. For the sake of Jesus, forgive our doubt, our little faith, and our despair. Help us to be more positive about life. Let the power and radiance of that first Easter morning transform us into new creatures in Christ, who get up each day believing that you are in control, and feeling that something wonderful is oging to happen because our Savior lives! Amen.
