A Prayer for Good Friday

Gracious God, it is a day to go inward.  A day to feel the deep darkness of death.  A day to be quiet with the heavy silence that looms large.  A day to feel the pounding weight of untruth and injustice.  A day to own up to what is strangling my own soul.  A day to feel gratitude for the full truth of your deep and abiding love — love that refused to claim its own safety, but willingly gave itself for me.  This is a day of interiority.  Let my soul be open and empty before you.  I ask this for the sake of your love.
