A Prayer for Friday, March 29, 2013

Good Friday/Thirty-Ninth Day of Lent

O God,

While it may seem at first glance that hate nailed Jesus to the cross, it is actually the case that love put him there. His love—God’s love—compelled him to give his life up.

As we think about the meaning of his death, about the meaning of our lives, and about the meaning of taking up our cross and following him, help us to remember that love will also put us where we need to be—and that our place may well be a painful and costly one.
