Here’s another beautiful Good Friday prayer written by Christine Sine, and posted on the Godspace website.
Prayer for Good Friday
God who created us suffers because of us
God who died upon the cross suffers for us
God who dwells with us suffers with us
And in God’s suffering we find hope
God, your suffering brings us salvation
Without you the horrors of human suffering would be unbearable
Your story of life, death and resurrection gives life meaning
Your suffering frees us from our prisons
Because of your suffering a new world is breaking into ours
May we live this day in the knowledge of your pain
May we live this day in the assurance of your love
May we live this day in the hope of the resurrection.
