HOLY WEEK – Good Friday Prayer

Friday (Good Friday) – Holy Week Prayer

John 18:1-40John 19:1-42Isaiah 52:13-15Isaiah 53:1-12Hebrews 10:16-25; Psa 22

Lord God,
Jesus cried out to you on the cross,
“Why have you forsaken me?”
You seemed so far from his cry
And from his distress.

Those who stood at the foot of the cross
Wondered where you were,
As they saw Jesus mocked and shamed and killed.
Where were you then?

Lord God,
We, too, ask where you are,
When there is trouble and suffering and death,
And we cry out to you for help.

Be near to us, and save us
So that we may praise you for your deliverance.

Lord God,
We wait, on Friday, for the resurrection of Sunday
And sometimes our lives seem a succession of Fridays
And we cannot see what is “Good.”

Teach us to call your name
As Jesus did.
Make us to trust in you like little children.
In Jesus’ name,

Amen.
