Malachi 4:2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall.
Dear Jesus, Sun of righteousness, the bright rays of glory on that first Easter Sunday gave a renewed vigor and a fresh start to your followers, especially Peter. As you know, it can be quite a challenge sometimes, both physically and mentally, to get out of bed and tackle the day’s tasks. All the more important it is, then, for me to feel your bone-penetrating rays of forgiveness and to receive your muscle-energizing promises of strength and power. With your spiritual healing in my wings I intend to honor you today with my thoughts and my actions—grant me this strength! Shine, Jesus, shine, in this heart of mine! Amen.
