A Prayer for Tuesday in Holy Week

O God, make us mindful of our brokenness, that we might be more mindful of your healing.

Make us mindful of our sin, that we might be more mindful of your forgiveness.

Make us mindful of our death, that we might be more mindful of your promised life.

Make us see the Cross, that we might be more able to see the Empty Tomb.

Remind us that we are dust, that we might be the more mindful of your Spirit.

Empty us, to fill us.

Judge us, to save us.

Weaken us, to strengthen us.

Silence us, to enable us to speak His praise alone,

Who suffered such hostility against himself that we might receive all the blessings of Heaven,

And in whose blessed Name these my prayers are said. Amen.
