praying for resurrection

a first thought for easter sunday… we’re doing Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday in the women’s prison.

give us a taste of resurrection
but make us greedy for more

content only with a world that is turned inside out
and re-formed in the new shape of love

rip apart fear, give birth to freedom
dismantle injustice and rebuild with peace
transform our betrayals into truth and compassion
breathe into our hell a promise of life.
