Good Friday Prayer of Invocation


Glorious God, we are gathered here this night
To worship You;
To give you the glory due your name;
And especially,
To remember Jesus,
The author and perfector of our faith.

For the love which sent Him to earth for us,
We glorify you.
For the grace that comes to us through Jesus,
We magnify you.
For the life that is alive in us by the Spirit,
We give you thanks.

Draw near to us, Lord, as we draw near to You.
In hearing your Word,
In feasting at your Table,
In facing your cross,
Our prayer is this:
Let us see your love,
let us submit to your will,
and let us glorify you.
In the matchless name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
