Wednesday of the Fifth Week of Easter
God of joy, growth and resurrection,
In this Easter season, I feel connected to you in a deeper way.
I am a branch that holds fast to you, the life-giving source of my life.
With grace, I sometimes become aware that without you, I can do nothing.
Give me the focus to keep my heart always directed toward you.
Guide me in everything to walk the path of your light.
Let me be always grateful that you fill me
with an abundance of your gifts.
Bless this day with your Spirit, and stir my heart to your awakening.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
