Verse Of The Day

Revelation 22:17

17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.

John 13:1-17 • John 13:34-35

Lord God,

You sent your Son into the world,

And before his hour had come,

He washed his disciples’ feet.

You had given all things into his hands.

He had come from you, and was going to you,

And what did he do?

He knelt down on the floor,

And washed his friends’ feet.

He was their teacher and their Lord,

Yet he washed their feet.

Lord God, help us learn from his example;

Help us to do as he has done for us.

The world will know we are his disciples

If we love one another.

Strengthen our hands and our wills for love

And for service.

Keep before our eyes the image of your Son,

Who, being God, became a Servant for our sake.

All glory be to him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

One God, now and forever.

Amen.

John 18:1-40 • John 19:1-42 • Isaiah 52:13-15 • Isaiah 53:1-12 • Hebrews 10:16-25 • Psalm 22

Lord God,

Jesus cried out to you on the cross,

“Why have you forsaken me?”

You seemed so far from his cry

And from his distress.

Those who stood at the foot of the cross

Wondered where you were,

As they saw Jesus mocked and shamed and killed.

Where were you then?

Lord God,

We, too, ask where you are,

When there is trouble and suffering and death,

And we cry out to you for help.

Be near to us, and save us

So that we may praise you for your deliverance.

Lord God,

We wait, on Friday, for the resurrection of Sunday

And sometimes our lives seem a succession of Fridays

And we cannot see what is “Good”.

Teach us to call your name

As Jesus did.

Make us to trust in you like little children.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.
