A Good Friday Collect

Gracious Lord, who suffered so greatly for our sake, through your wounds make whole we who are broken, sick, and beaten down, and bring healing to your needy children who turn our eyes to you, through you who was lifted to the cross and now reigns from heaven with the Father and Holy Spirit in glory forever and ever. Amen. ‘Surely he has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases; yet we accounted him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are healed.’ – Isaiah 53:4-5
