A Prayer for Good Friday

Deliver us, O God, from the grip of our fears. It is so costly to follow Jesus. We do not want to risk our lives. We do not want to sacrifice our advantages. There are people we find it difficult to love. There are places we do not want to go. We find it hard to speak of our faith. Yet we are attracted to Jesus and want to be disciples. Help us develop the self-discipline we need to follow Jesus, that we may not grow weary or lose heart. Amen.
