A Prayer for Friday, April 18, 2014

Good Friday/Thirty-Ninth Day of Lent

O God,

It is the day of the crucifixion of your Son Jesus.

Help us to contemplate his suffering.

Help us to know better what it means

to be crucified with him,
to take up our cross and follow him,
to live a life with the cross at its center,


to embrace our suffering as a way to share in his suffering and
to take the suffering of others onto ourselves

for your sake and for their sake.

Help us to know nothing today but Jesus Christ crucified.
