Easter Monday: Dear Lord who gave St. Mark grace to present to your church the Gospel of our Lord, Yeshuah haMoshiach and to be the first Bishop of Alexandria.

Father, as we finish our Passover Observance, help us to maintain our lives free from sin and to keep our eyes on the Passover lamb.

Easter Thursday: Grant heavenly Father, that we who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord's resurrection now go out into the world and do his will. The Lord is risen indeed! Let us glorify his name! Amen

Easter Saturday: O Gracious Redeemer, we thank you for the assurance that despite our wanderings, you will not abandon us. As we gather for worship today, fill us anew with your spirit and grant us your peace again. For the glory of your name. Amen.
