My Good Friday Prayer

My prayer this Good Friday, April 2, 2010…

Jesus, as we come tonight to celebrate You and Your willingness to wear the crown of shame, we do it with great joy because we know that it is finished and you are now wearing the crown of glory.  Might we come to You tonight with our friends and family knowing that You are great and we are free.  Might we come to You tonight and re-live the gospel, the good news, that You became our sin so that we might become the righteousness of God.  Might we come to You tonight and be forever changed because You are the Supreme One and to You is due all glory, honor, and worship.  Thank You Lord Jesus, our Great King.

* The picture is the crown of broken glass from Northshore’s Good Friday service.  Here’s what Christina Bothel, the crown’s designer, wrote about it: “This collage of glass illustrates the glory and the pain of the cross. The pieces of glass can be an image of brokenness and pain but also of light and glory. The glass on the crown is clear, pure, and full of light. Glory is found in both… in the light that shines through our brokenness and in the celebration of purity. But even in the celebration of purity there is the remnant of suffering.”

  1. Awesome picture…better then any I got. Can’t take credit it for all of it though I had an awesome team working with me and I couldn’t have done it without them.

    Thanks for letting us smash glass!
