A Prayer for Holy Week

God, as we walk through Holy Week toward the Cross,
may we remember the  wonder of who You are.

Beyond sin. Your love is inexhaustible.

Beyond brokenness. Your forgiveness is incomprehensible.

Beyond betrayal. Your grace is poured out eternally.

Beyond death. Your life is unimaginable.

Beyond human understanding. Your ways are always higher than ours.

                                                                             -Christine Sine
