A Collect for Good Friday
Suffering servant, crushed for our iniquities, forgive us we beg, for it is our own sins that you bore upon the cruel cross, and it is our fault that you hung there in pain and disgrace. Fill our hearts with remorse for our ways and yet gratitude for the manifold compassion you showed, that we would enter into your love with repentance and thanksgiving always, through you who willingly took our place. Amen.
'There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, with Jesus between them.' - John 19:18
What is it like to envision Jesus on the cross? Can you sit with that vision and let all that it brings up wash over you and through you?
