Holy Saturday Prayers for the World

Apr 11, 2020

Holy Saturday

The blackest day
The emptiest day
The sorriest day
The silent-as-a-grave day
The hold-your-breath day
The candles-barely-shed-a ray day
The waiting day
The no-word-from-God day
The hope-slides-into-hopeless day
The call-it-quits day
The please, Lord, give-us-a-glimmer-of-light day

Here are the lectionary readings for the day:
Job 14:1-14
Lamentations 3:1-9, 19-24
Psalm 31:1-4, 15-16
1Peter 4:1-8
Matthew 27:57-66
John 19:38-42
