Tomorrow is Good Friday, in German, Karfreitag (“Friday of Sorrows”). I think the German version summarises the day more effectively than the English version. I understand that Good Friday is meant to mirror the Jewish Yom Kippur (“Day of Atonement”). Today, I’ve been thinking about my sins, and that reminded me of the Jesus Prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
For more information on the Jesus prayer, here’s a link:
It’s a good simple prayer. Arguably the Lord’s Prayer is just a variant.
Have a prayerful day, won’t you!
