The Nails that were Used, weren’t Enough, it was His wondrous Love

Love held Him to the tree

 

Father, look with love upon your people,

the love which our Lord Jesus Christ showed us

when he delivered himself to evil men

and suffered the agony of  the cross,

for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit one God, for ever and ever. Amen

I am At Fault

gf
T’was Friday and was Good

For our sake our Redeemer suffered death and was buried, and rose again. With heartfelt love let us adore him and pray:

  • Christ our teacher, for our sake you were obedient even to accepting death,┬áteach us to obey the Father’s will in all things
  • Christ our life, by your death on the cross you destroyed the power of evil and death, may we die with you, to rise with your in glory
  • Christ our King, you became an outcast among us, a worm and no man, teach us the humility by which you saved the world
  • Christ our salvation, you gave yourself up to death out of love for us, help us to show your love to one another
  • Christ our Savior, on the cross you embraced all time with your outstretched arms, unite God’s scattered children in our kingdom of salvation
