7 Uplifting Prayers for Good Friday Service

Jesus’ death and resurrection are all a part of God’s big plan, and Good Friday is just the start of what would truly become one of the biggest gifts from the Lord. Here are 7 uplifting prayers for Good Friday service.

Prayer that Many Will Have Life in Jesus’ Name
Precious Lamb of God, as we meditate on Your great sacrifice for all mankind, we pray that many around the world will believe that You are the Son of God, and through believing, have life in Your Name. We are undone when we think of how You voluntarily surrendered Yourself for the sins of all people in the world. What love that excels all others! May we love as You loved us! Amen.

Prayer of Lifelong Surrender
Our Savior and our God, we are blessed to share in Your sufferings, and we are overwhelmed to think of the place we have in Your loving heart, that You endured such agony on our behalf. Your infinite love binds us in grateful service and lifelong surrender to the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world – the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. Our only response is to love You with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind. Amen.

Prayer of Sorrow and Thanksgiving
O Sacred Head, we weep as we consider how You took on our infirmities, You carried our sorrows, You were pierced for our iniquities, You accepted the punishment that brought us peace, and You received the wounds through which we are healed. We fall at Your feet and beg Your favor and Your grace. How can we thank You, dearest Friend? May we never outlive our love for You! Amen.

Prayer to the Lamb
O Jesus of Sorrows, despised and rejected, You were silently led to Golgotha as a lamb to the slaughter. You poured out Your life for our redemption. Our souls cry out, worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing! With Your blood, You have purchased those from every tribe and language and nation! May we diligently work to take Your message of redemption to the ends to the earth. Amen.

Prayer to Have the Mind of Christ
Christ Jesus, we pray that we will have the same mindset that You had when You emptied Yourself of all but love, stripped off Your royal robes and privileges, became a servant to mankind, and finally humbled Yourself to become obedient to death on the cross. May we continue to work out our salvation with fear and trembling, and may we be blameless and pure, children of God, shining as lights in the world. Amen.

Prayer to Keep Our Eyes on Our Champion
O Fountain of Life, help us to keep our eyes on Jesus, our Champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting Him, He endured the cross and is now seated at Your right hand, ever interceding for us. Remind us of what our loving Savior endured for our sakes, so we do not grow weary and lose heart. Help us to run with endurance the race set before us. Amen.

Prayer to Proclaim the Message of the Cross
God of Infinite Mercy, may the cross of Christ Jesus never be empty of its power. Help us remember to always proclaim the message of the cross to a world that is lost and dying. Help us to proclaim Christ crucified, the power of God, and the wisdom of God, to those who are perishing in their sin. We praise You forever, Lord Jesus, for You are our righteousness, our holiness, and our redemption. Amen.
