Easter Prayer

O God,
you gave your only Son to the death of the Cross for our redemption,
and by his glorious resurrection
you delivered us from the power of the enemy.
Teach us to die to sin daily,
that we may forever live with him
in the joy of his resurrection;
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
