7 Best Good Friday Prayers

Please subscribe to our youtube channel

When sin entered the world, it brought separation between God and mankind. So in order to renew man’s relationship with God, God sent down his only begotten son, Jesus Christ as a sacrificial lamb to die to pay the debt of our sins.

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds, we are healed.

Isaiah 53:5

Good Friday is a day set aside to remember the ultimate price that Jesus Christ paid for our sins by dying on the cross.
He suffered so much for our sins. He was betrayed, humiliated, mocked and even spat on. He went through all that so that our sins may be forgiven and we can have eternal life.

As you remember the death of Jesus Christ, try as much as possible to take your bible and read some bible verses on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This will help remind you of what this season is truly about.

Below are 7 good Friday prayers you can say on this day as you reflect on God’s love and the death of Jesus Christ, our savior.
