A Prayer for Good Friday (1) | Good Friday (Year C)

God of the cross,
For us, sinners though we are, you were nailed to a cross.
For us, you took a final breath, and walked willingly into the darkness.
For us, you were broken.
For us, you lived.
For us, you died.

You do not deserve this death.
We do not deserve your life.

God of grace,
Give our hearts courage to accept your grace
and to respond to the life that was given for all.
Guide us through the darkness ahead
that we might be renewed by the light that is to come.
It the name of the Blessed One who was taken and broken, we pray. Amen.
