Thy Will Be Done 


CONFESS:
Take a moment to slow down and pray this prayer, either together with family or roommates, or by yourself:

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name.

Amen.

RECIEVE ASSURANCE:
We have assurance in Christ, the fulfillment of prophesy.
Read the Word of the Lord:

Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. All we, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Isaiah 53:4-6

Take a moment to reflect on the video you just watched.
What sort of emotions did it stir up?
Consider sharing these responses with those around you.

PRAY:
Lord, the cross is foolishness to much of the world. It’s violent and primitive, and yet if we long to see the light of Easter, if we long for the hope of the resurrection, then we must face the tragedy and the darkness of the cross. Be with us, Lord, we pray, in the sorrow of Good Friday. May your Spirit lead us to greater understanding, may we truly abide in Jesus through the sorrow of Good Friday and the Hope of Easter, and may we rest upon your promises as our Father and our Lord.

Amen
