Good Friday — #40WordPrayer on JUSTIFICATION
Then he handed him over to them to be crucified.
— John 19:16
The injustices of the world can be overwhelming,
so we turn away, we walk away, we give in.
God, in the face of injustice,
give us humility to see our involvement,
courage to step in the way,
and faith to trust your power over others.
We have such a difficult time embracing our role in death: the walk to the cross, the preparation for death, and the striking of nails. Like we do with many difficult aspects of the faith story, be it the filth of the manger, the rape of Bathsheba by David, or people being massacred in the name of God, we make these things palatable by sanitizing, justifying, or simply turning the page.
