Blessed be our God. For ever and ever. Amen.

Collect for Good Friday

Let us pray.

Almighty God, we pray you graciously to behold this your family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, and given into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death upon the cross; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Dear People of God: Our heavenly Father sent his Son into

the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world

through him might be saved; that all who believe in him

might be delivered from the power of sin and death, and

become heirs with him of everlasting life. Amen.
