A Prayer for Good Friday, April 6, 2012


Jesus died instead of Barabbas, literally.
Simon of Cyrene carried the cross of Jesus, literally.

In different ways, both of them experienced grace.

O God,

Show us today what it means that

Jesus died on the cross for us

and that

we must take up our cross and follow him.

Lead us to celebrate the grace that

compelled Jesus to die for us

and that

compels us to die with him.
