Holy Saturday

img_4465.jpgHere is a prayer for Holy Saturday from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. It struck me this morning and has become my prayer for the day. O God, Creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the crucified body of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

 May you eagerly wait with God today for the coming resurrection and new life of tomorrow.
