Prayers & Worship: April 2020
Are you looking for daily prayer and activities to use at home during Holy Week?
- We'd like to recommend 'Holy Week Tears' which has been Prepared by the Revds. Elaine & Graeme Halls.
Holy Week Tears guides you through the events of Holy Week — a week set apart by Christians to reflect on the final days of Jesus' life from his entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to his death on the Cross on Good Friday and his Resurrection on Easter Day. A week full of high-tension moments, of tears and jeers, support and rejection, betrayal and denial. High points and low points, noise and silence, crowds and isolation.
- Each day focuses on one of the symbols of Holy Week with the opportunity to create your own visual reminder that builds up to Easter Day (see the picture).
- You can download 'Holy Week Tears' by clicking on the PDF under the picture.
