The third prayer is a reflection for adults on God's love, life, hope and truth which celebrates the moment Christ rose from the grave. The final prayer can be used as a grace before an Easter breakfast or dinner.
Short Easter prayer for children
(a rhyming prayer suitable for infant and preschool children)
God made you and God made me,
He made the world for us to see.
God loves you and long ago,
He sent his Son to tell us so.
Jesus showed us many things,
To love and share and dance and sing.
To learn and pray, to help and care,
He promised he'd always be there.
He died but then came back to life,
Let's celebrate for he's alive!
