Good Friday Prayer Thoughts During the joint Good Friday service with Holy Cross, members of the large congregation had an opportunity to identify places, situations or people where there is violence and injustice, suffering and loss. Each place, situation and person named by members of the congrega- tion were recorded on post-it slips and hung from the cross that had been carried in at the start of the Service, whilst the choir sang “By Your Cross”. All our prayers, spoken and unspoken, were then gathered in the prayer that Jesus taught us.
