a prayer for good friday

O Holy and ever-blessed Jesus, who being the eternal Son of God and most high in the glory of the Father, did vouchsafe in love for us sinners to be born of a pure Virgin, and did humble thyself unto death, even the death of the cross: Deepen within us, we beseech thee, a due sense of thine infinite love; that adoring and believing in thee as our Lord and Saviour, we may trust in thine infinite merits, imitate thy holy example, obey thy commands, and finally enjoy thy promises; who with the Father and the Holy Ghost lives and reigns, one God, world without end. Amen.

–John Wesley (1703-1791)

With thanks to TitusOneNine.
