A Collect for Good Friday

“… he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”

Suffering servant, who for this day was born and for this sacrifice came into the world, fill our hearts with sorrow that we caused this day to be necessary, with gratitude at what you were willing to endure, with compassion for those like Pilate and the council who did not comprehend, and with tenderness toward those like Peter and the twelve who were afraid, that we might participate with all our hearts, with all our souls, and with all our minds in this remembrance of your most benevolent mercy for us, through you, the Messiah and our Lord. Amen.
