Birthed in a congregation that was “homeless” last year,
“Good Friday Prayers in the City”
are a Call to Worship with our feet and our voices,
our hearts and our souls.
Eight stops in the city,
eight voices seeking life and hope…
“When we consider the welfare of all,
what about those who have nothing?”
eight places to lift in prayer…
“Good Friday is a day of remembrance for the homeless”
eight places of seeking refuge or being refused refuge…
“When you have done for the least of these,
you have done it for me.”
eight places to lift our voices in song…
“Today we walk with you in mind, O Lord, help us to see
The work that in your name is done, and what as yet could be.
Give us the courage Simon showed, your cross to lift and take.
To follow in your footsteps, Lord, and of your task partake.”
(Text: J.W. Johnson, 2009)
aware that there are thousands more beyond these particular places…
“Your journey led to Golgotha To die upon the tree.
Your task was done, the price was paid, Salvation now is free.
And now with solemn eyes you ask This plain and simple plea,
“All this, dear ones, I’ve done for you. What can you do for me?”
