Good Friday Prayer
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
