Prayer for the Second Sunday of Easter

O Lion of the tribe of Judah, O Root of David,
enlighten our hearts and minds with your true wisdom,
that we who rejoice in your Resurrection,
may join with your blessed ones,
and with all the heavenly host in your kingdom
in praising your glorious name;
with the Father and the Holy Spirit
you live and reign,
ever one God,
now and forever.
