Daily Spiritual Reflection
An Easter Thursday Prayer
in the days after your Resurrection
your disciples and friends remained
behind locked doors
as they were frightened without you.
You came into their midst and spoke
the reassuring words “peace be with you.”
Your presence and words gave them joy and hope.
Lord, in these days when I feel behind the locked doors of many types,
I feel afraid, alone and concerned.
I know that you are with me.
Speak the words “peace be with you”
to my weary soul that in faith
I may find joy today.
