Merciful God, we don’t always recognize Christ, even when we are looking directly at your Incarnate Love.
We cling to our assumptions about how life on earth should unfold, forgetting that life in your realm shatters those expectations.
Forgive us when we go through our daily routine, forgetting to look for the Risen One.
Forgive us when coming to worship is more about seeing our friends than it is about encountering you and our Resurrected Lord.
Open our eyes and our hearts, O God, to the full awareness of your presence with us, in each and every moment of our lives.
We pray in the name of the Christ who is alive!
Alleluia and Amen.
