LITANY OF WORSHIP

CALL TO WORSHIP (John 18, John 19)
Leader: Come, let us gather again, in the shadow of the cross of Jesus, the Christ!
People: We gather to remember the overwhelming evidence of Love’s ultimate sacrifice!
Leader: Amazing Love, how can it be that Thou, my Lord would die for me?
People: Amazing Love, how can it be that Thou, my Lord would die first me?

OPENING PRAYER
O God of infinite love and power, we gather together on this Good Friday, reflecting on the passion of Jesus. We are humbled in the presence of such love and mercy. Open our hearts to the depths of such love and the vastness of such grace and mercy. Pour out on us the goodness of this Friday, and fill us with Your love and powerful Holy Spirit. Remove from us all sin and offer us a new life revived and found in Jesus the Christ. Amen.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Isaiah 53, Psalm 51)
All we, like sheep, have gone astray. We have all turned to our own way. We have indeed sinned and have been the cause of Jesus’ suffering. Please forgive us, we pray. Remove the sins that distance us from You and those we care about. Forgive us from all that separates us from Thee, O Lord. Create in us a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.  

SILENT PRAYER OF REFLECTION

WORDS OF ASSURANCE
In the name of the compassionate Christ, you are forgiven. For God has declared, “I forgive and will remember you sins no more!” In Christ we are forgiven. Hear and believe the GOOD NEWS!

CHARGE & BENEDICTION (1 Peter 2)
By His stripes, we are healed.
By His wounds, we are made whole.
Go, in the name of Jesus the Christ, and live in the salvation made possible by the GOODNESS OF THIS FRIDAY!
