Good Friday Resources – Updated for 2023

by Christine Sine

Over this last week I have been posting prayers, liturgies and worship resources for Holy week. I have already posted resources for Stations of the Cross but here are some additional resources for Good Friday that I thought you might enjoy.  I have interspersed them with images of the crucifixion from different cultures as I find reflecting on these remind me that Christ died for all cultures and all nations.

  • Many Godspace contributors love to write prayers for each of the significant days during Easter week. Here are some that we have written in the past.
  • What’s So Good About Friday – Rowan Wyatt
  • The following prayer is one I wrote for Good Friday several years ago.

This is the first Good Friday prayer I wrote and still one of the most popular

The following is part of a liturgy I wrote a couple of years ago that I often return to:

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.

Here is part of a longer liturgy designed for church or small group use:

Today we walk with Christ in the dark shadow of the cross,
Knowing we have weighed him down,
Our burdens crushed his shoulders,
His suffering is for us,
For us he willingly endured death.
Let us trust in God alone,
And walk the way of the cross together,
Let us move forward without fear into God’s eternal purposes.
Then we will never know disgrace,
And we will learn to praise our God who never abandons us.
