Pray with us - A series of Easter reflections

Transforming Nottinghamshire Together is supported by the Church Urban fund (CUF). Join our national team as they reflect and pray this Holy Week and Easter. Visit throughout the weeks as we make our journey together.

Here's Revd ELIZABETH CARNELLEY, director of partnerships.

Holy Saturday – the day between Good Friday

Holy Saturday – the day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday - is a day of waiting, of vigil.

The disciples didn’t know what was going to happen, but they had Jesus’s promises.

“The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of his enemies. He will be killed, but three days later he will rise from the dead.” ( Mark 9:31)

On Holy Saturday many churches hold silent vigils to reflect on the story of redemption, to wait, to hope, to prepare.

This year I will be thinking about those waiting - for someone to come out of hospital, someone to come out of prison, or those who are watching, and waiting, with those who are dying.

Heavenly Father, be near those who are waiting and watching, hoping and praying, weeping and grieving.

May we be able to wait with them, hope with them, weep with them; and also to rejoice and be thankful, in the fulfilment of the promise of your Son, to be with us always, to the end of time.
