Prayers for Good Friday

The traditional prayer for Good Friday in The Book of Common Prayer is as follows:

Almighty God, we beseech thee graciously to behold this thy family, for which our Lord Jesus Christ was contented to be betrayed, and given up into the hands of sinners, and to suffee death upon the cross; who now liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost ever, one God, world without end. Amen.

The lectionary readings given for today include: Psalm 22.1-22; Isaiah 52.13 to 53.12; Hebrews 10.1-25, and John 19.1-37.
