Morning Prayer Guide - Good Friday

Read: Isaiah 52:13-53:12, Psalm 22, Hebrews 10:16-25, and John 18:1-19:42

It has been a long journey. Forty days of looking at ourselves, finding things that don't please God, and working out how to fix them. And then today our Savior is betrayed, denied, beaten, mocked, and crucified – just like in today's passage.

Thankfully, God is willing to forgive us for missing the mark. He knows when we are truly trying to be disciples, and when we only say we are. Ask God to help you with your walk. Thank him for his patience. You may find the following prayer helpful:

Almighty God, we pray you graciously to behold this your family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, and given into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death upon the cross; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
