Opening Hymn     “The Old Rugged Cross”

Invocation

Almighty and most merciful God, whose will is that all people should be saved, and who did give Your Son our Lord Jesus Christ to be the expiation for the sins of the whole world: We humbly bow in adoration and praise before Your holy throne on this Good Friday and thank You for Your unspeakable gift through Your Son.

The Reproaches

  • Reader: O My people, what I have done unto you, or wherein have I wearied you? Testify against me. Because I brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, you have prepared a cross for your Savior.
  • People: O God, holy and mighty, have mercy upon us.
  • Reader: Because I led you through the desert forty years, and fed you with manna, quail, and water bringing you into a land exceedingly good, you have prepared a cross for your Savior.
  • People: O God, holy and mighty, have mercy upon us.
  • Reader: Before you I opened the Red Sea: and you have opened my side with a spear. I went before you in a pillar of cloud: and you have brought me to the judgment hall of Pilate.
  • People: O God, holy and mighty, have mercy upon us.
  • Reader: I gave you food of manna and quail in the desert and you have beaten me with blows and stripes. I made you to drink the water of salvation from the rock: and you have made me to drink gall and vinegar.
  • People: O God, holy and mighty, have mercy upon us.
  • Reader:  I gave you a royal scepter: and you have given my head a crown of thorns. I lifted you up with great power: and you have hung me upon a cross.
  • People: O God, holy and mighty, have mercy upon us.

Gospel Reading                      John 19:16-30

6th candle is extinguished   Prayer of Intercession (in unison)

O merciful and glorious God, You have made all of the human family and You hate nothing which You have made. You, O God, do not will the death of anyone, but in Your magnificent love desire that all of the human family would come to You by faith in Christ. Have mercy upon us, and especially upon all those who do not have faith in You, or those who deny the faith in Jesus Christ. Take from all those who are wandering from You, ignorance, hardness of heart, bitterness, contempt, so they may be led by Your Holy Spirit to that divine relationship with You. We pray this in the name of Jesus, along with the prayer He taught us to say, Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, For Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
