Good Friday Prayer

Brad M. Griffin | Apr 22, 2011

Christine Sine, liturgist and contemplative author/speaker, wrote this prayer for Good Friday 2011 (copied below). Pass it along to others today, or maybe say it together with your family or staff, as you consider the gift of Jesus’ life to us.

Jesus you took bread and broke it

You shared it with your friends

As you were broken to feed us with the bread of life

Jesus you took wine and poured it out

Grapes crushed and drained of life

As you were crushed and drained of your life blood

Jesus you prayed fervently in agony of spirit

That Gods cup of suffering might pass away

Your sweat fell like drops of blood yet you endured the pain

You hung upon a tree and were crucified for us

But looked in compassion on your murderers

God forgive us for we dont know how we contribute to your suffering
