Wednesday in Holy Week 3.27.13

I am giving you a new command –

love one another.
Just as I have loved you,

so you must love one another.

This is how all men will know that you are my disciples,

because you have such love for one another.

John 13.35

Lord God,
your Son our Saviour gave his body to be whipped
and turned his face for men to spit upon.
Give your servants grace to accept suffering for His sake,
confident of the glory that will be revealed,
through Jesus Christ our Lord
who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

O Lord, make haste to help me.
God of Glory,
may our worship this day
fix the eyes of our faith on Jesus,
the pioneer and perfecter of our new humanity,
who is seated at the right hand of your throne,
now and for ever.
God our help,
your Son was betrayed by one who called himself a friend.
May we who call him Lord
ever remain his faithful people,
for He lives and reigns with You now and for ever.
Amen and Amen.
