Promise of Renewed Life

God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.
John 3:16

You know our hearts, O God, and you know the ways in which we turn away from you and turn our backs on the suffering of others. On this day of death, open our hearts to the beating heart of the world. As we remember the events of that Friday long ago, help us to see the instruments of death and destruction that break the bodies and spirits of all your people, in all times and places.

Good Friday Prayer, Melrose United Church
