Dear Jesus, it’s Easter and everyone says “Happy Easter,” but I don’t feel happy because it hurt You so much to die on the cross. I know the Easter story has a happy ending, but I still feel sad knowing You had to go through all that pain because of my sins. Thank you Jesus. I love You. Amen.

Dear Jesus, please send Your Holy Spirit to teach me how wide and long and high and deep Your love is (Ephesians 3:18). Amen.

Dear Jesus, You know what is best for me. I want to pay attention to what You want to teach me so that my peace will be like a river and my righteousness like the waves of the sea (Isaiah 48:17-18). Amen.

Dear God, it’s so nice to know that You want to enjoy my company. Thank you for sending Jesus to die in my place so that my sins can be forgiven and I can have a friendship with You. Amen.

Dear God, thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to be my teacher and to remind me of everything Jesus said (John 14:26). Amen.

Lord Jesus, I want to obey You to show You that I love You. Thank you for promising to love me and to show Yourself to me (John 14:21). Amen.
