Phoenix Rising

Lord,

Son of Man,

you willingly laid down your life,

embracing, being all of our limitations,

fears, shame, and vulnerability.

You died despised by us all.

Son of God,

you had the power to take up your life,

destroy the power of sin,

obliterate all fear of death,

and rise, more glorious than the sun.

I believe, and your Spirit dwells within me.

The power that raised you from the dead,

and seated you at the right hand of the Father in heaven,

is the same power,

moving and working in me,

resurrecting me,

like a phoenix from the ashes,

a tiger rising.

I am a new creation united with your Spirit,

and there is no stopping you in me.

Amen.
