In preparing for Easter this year I have been especially conscious of living in the moment of each part of the Easter story. I have tried not to rush ahead in these prayers of intercession for Good Friday but to begin to imagine myself waiting at the foot of the cross, waiting for death and what that means as we hold our world in prayer.

Prayers of Intercession for Good Friday

3 hours Lord,
Your disciples, the women who followed you, your mother,
They waited for 3 hours
3 hours waiting at the foot of the cross
3 hours waiting at a distance
3 hours waiting for you to die
Helpless, powerless,

Lord, this Good Friday we hold your world before you in prayer...
