Easter Prayer of St. Hippolytus of Rome
Christ is Risen: The world below lies desolate Christ is Risen: The spirits of evil are fallen Christ is Risen: The angels of God are rejoicing Christ is Risen: The tombs of the dead are empty Christ is Risen indeed from the dead, the first of the sleepers, Glory and power are his forever and ever

Prayer to the Resurrected Christ who Saves Us
O Jesus, King, receive my supplication, and consider my supplication, as a pledge to You. For you, O living King, have gone forth and gone up, out of Hell, as Conqueror. Woe to those who have rejected you; For, to evil spirits and demons, You are sorrow, to Satan and to Death, You are pain, To Sin and Hell, You are mourning. Yet, joy has come today, for those who are born anew. On this great day therefore, We give great glory to You, who died and is now alive, that to all you may give life and resurrection!

Catholic Collect for Easter Sunday
God our Father, by raising Christ your Son you conquered the power of death and opened for us the way to eternal life. Let our celebration today raise us up and renew our lives by the Spirit that is within us. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Eastern Prayer of Christ Resurrected
Christ, rising again from the dead dieth now no more: death shall no more have dominion over him; for in that he died, he died once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God, alleluia, alleluia. Let the Jews now tell us, how the soldiers, who guarded the sepulchre, lost the King, though they had placed a rock over him. Why kept they not the Rock of Justice? Either let them restore the buried One, or adore with us the risen One, saying: But in that he liveth, he liveth unto God, alleluia, alleluia.

Easter Prayer of Praise
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In His great mercy He has given us a new birth to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. It is reserved in heaven for you, who because of your faith in God are being protected by His power until the salvation that is ready to be revealed at the end of time. New Saint Joseph People's Prayer Book Queen of Heaven / Regina Caeli Queen of Heaven rejoice, Alleluia; The Son whom you merited to bear, Alleluia, has risen as He said, Alleluia. Pray for us to God, Alleluia. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, Alleluia, For the Lord is truly Risen, Alleluia.

Catholic Collect for the 2nd Sunday of Easter
God of mercy, you wash away our sins in water, you give us a new birth in the Spirit, and redeem us in the blood of Christ. As we celebrate Christ's resurrection, increase our awareness of these blessings, and renew your gift of life within us. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Catholic Prayer for the Easter Virtues
Lord, the resurrection of Your Son has given us new life and renewed hope. Help us to live as new people in pursuit of the Christian ideal. Grant us wisdom to know what we must do, the will to want to do it, the courage to undertake it, the perseverance to continue to do it, and the strength to complete it.
