My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer,
In you our ancestors put their trust;
To you they cried out and were saved;
Good Friday Service Prayer
Dear Father in heaven, we thank you for this time to gather and reflect on your promises of redemption ,the hope of reconciliation and gift of eternal life all fulfilled by your son’s bloodshed.
We thank you for the specific point in time that you chose for Jesus to die on the cross and rise again, help us tonight, Holy spirit to understand that, that one act was not just an Historical moment but is truly an eternal one covering the expanse of all time and space.
Come remind us to lay down all our sins, fears and pride at the cross, where you ,dear Jesus, took them upon yourself, your own flesh and laid them to rest in your broken body.
Teach us how in receiving and believing we are marked by the blood of the Passover lamb,just as Jesus was put to death but overcame the grave. We are now marked to pass from death to life, to worship the lamb into all eternity declaring
“Holy,holy holy is the lamb who was slain, who was and is and is to come.”
Lord give us revelation about where we have denied you and where you want to bring new life this season.
Holy Spirit tonight give us a new perspective, one from the fathers view. Teach us to see what the father see’s and do what the father does and love like the father loves, even as Jesus did, being obedient even unto death. Teach us what your kingdom come your will be done on Earth as it is in heaven looks like.
Tonight Lord awaken our hearts to worship you in spirit and in truth for your glory and honor.
