Prayers for Holy Week And Good Friday

by Christine Sine

Three bar cross

Over the last couple of weeks I have added several prayers to the Light for the Journey facebook page that are written especially for Good Friday and Holy week.  Here are some that you might like to contemplate today and over the coming week.  (Explanation of the Three bar cross )

Let us walk the way of the Cross together
And move forward without fear into God’s eternal purposes
May we trust in God alone, then we will never know disgrace


In the midst of grief and despair
May we sense Easter springtime coming
Death’s dark and overwhelming night
Will give way to resurrection light


May we look and listen,
Responding to the Spirit of God who lives within us
May we throw off our grave clothes
And take on the life of the one who raised Christ from the dead


Lord have mercy
When I stand in the shadow of the cross
Christ have mercy
When I kneel with a repentant heart
Lord have mercy
And shine your resurrection light on us
