Guideposts Founder, Norman Vincent Peale said, "The Easter message tells us: You need not be afraid of anything—not life with all its insecurities, its conflicts, its uncertainties; not afraid of even death itself. You need have no fear—no fear!" We hope these prayers, inspiring stories and tips will strengthen your faith and increase your sense of hope and rebirth in this sacred season.
An Easter Prayer
God, give us eyes to see the beauty of the Spring,
And to behold Your majesty in every living thing
And may we see in lacy leaves and every budding flower
The Hand that rules the universe with gentleness and power
And may this Easter grandeur that Spring lavishly imparts
Awaken faded flowers of faith lying dormant in our hearts,
And give us ears to hear, dear God,
the Springtime song of birds
With messages more meaningful than man's often empty words
Telling harried human beings who are lost in dark despair
Be like us and do not worry for God has you in His care.
