Dear God, this Good Friday I wish to tell you how grateful I am for the selfless sacrifice made by your holiness and the goodness of your sweet son, Jesus Christ. I know I am a sinner and no matter how hard I try to overcome sinning, I always find myself surrendering to the temptations of the world. God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, this is the grace then I ask from you that you give me the strength to fight back the evil temptations and wicked seductions of the world. Should I still have the misfortune to fall into the snare of the devil, I ask you the wisdom to realize my mistake soon and take steps to better it. I love you dear God.
Jesus Christ, pour your sweet blood on the wounds that my words must have created and heal them. I realize that killing someone might not necessarily mean taking their life but killing could also mean hurting someone so much that they wish they were dead. Give me the wisdom and strength that my mouth may open only to make someone feel better. May everyone who comes to me, feel better about themselves than they were feeling before they met me. I ask you this grace in the name of the Lord who made heaven and earth. Amen.
Sweet Mother Mary, nothing can be more painful than a mother witnessing the brutal torture and murder of her dear son, who has done nothing but only good. You bore the suffering and agony that no mother should ever experience. Still you love us, sinners, so much. Yet your love for us is ever forgiving and ever giving. I want to tell you that I am ever grateful to Jesus Christ for giving me a mother like you to venerate. I never find myself alone in any circumstance because I always know that you are always watching my back and protecting me. Praise you dear mother.
God Jesus, you know the problems I am facing. You understand my weaknesses much more than even I do. This cross I am facing is too much to bear for my weak shoulders. I find myself feeling extremely lonely and stressed out. I need your help Jesus Christ. Just the way you carried your cross of burden, please grant me the strength to face this difficult time with grace. You said, ask and you will receive, seek and you will find. I need you Lord, and I believe that you will be there. Amen.
God Jesus Christ, I know you see my suffering. You understand my pain and are living my anguish with me. I need your support as my strength to carry on during this painful time of agony. Just like how after you suffered on the cross and rose from the dead, I know that my pain too is temporary and I will come out of this dark cloud soon. Till then, dear Jesus, please be my guide. Give me the power of the Holy Spirit so that I may deal with this time with a smile on my face. May I never lose the trust and faith I have in your powers. On this Good Friday, I pray that with the coming of Easter Sunday, may a miracle take place and may these tears be replaced with smiles. I know you can help me, but more than that I know that you will help me. I love you dear Jesus.
O God who made heaven and earth, it is not difficult for you to destroy the sinners who caused so much of pain to you, their creator. Yet instead of punishing them, you loved them. Yet instead of rebuking them, you forgave them. They crucified your dear son, yet all you did was loved them even more. God, teach me to be more like you so that I too may carry on with your word of love and truth to all I meet. May no person come to me feeling closer to you that they did before they met me. I need your light to shine through me to all my brothers and sisters around me. May I learn to love even my enemies, and may I learn to give another chance to others who have wronged me. Just the way your love never falls out of chances for me no matter how many mistakes I make, may my love for you make me see you in all those I meet. Praise you Lord, thank you Lord. I say this prayer in the name of my sweet Jesus, Amen.
Jesus Christ, your love for me is ever forgiving. When I am really angry with those around me, I find it very difficult to forgive and let go. I fail to understand that when you my Lord and my Master, who is a reflection of perfection, could forgive me a thousand times for my mistakes, who am I, a sinner, to hold grudges against my brothers and sisters. When your people came to you with the woman who committed adultery, you said "Whoever is without sin among you, let him be the first to cast a stone at her." This is such a beautiful lesson to us, that we always find fault so easily in others, but don't tend to notice the faults in ourselves. None of us are perfect, yet we strive for perfection in others. I thereby ask this grace from you dear Jesus that I learn to accept more than expect and learn to love more than criticize. I say this prayer in the name of the God Almighty and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Dear God, this Good Friday, I ask you the grace to experience what Jesus experienced on the cross. I want to reflect and understand my sweet Jesus' pain and agony so that I am able to love him more. When Easter Sunday comes, may my heart rejoice in the most significant miracle that has even taken place with my Lord Jesus rising from the dead. During this period of Lent, I ask you for the strength to help me forgo the temptations of the world.
