Prayers for Passiontide from the Scottish Prayer Book
O LORD God our heavenly Father, regard, we beseech thee, with thy divine pity the pains of all thy children, and grant that the passion of our Lord and his infinite merits may make fruitful for good the miseries of the innocent, the sufferings of the sick, and the sorrows of the bereaved; through him who suffered in our flesh and died for our sake, thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
O GOD, who by the cross and passion of thy Son Jesus Christ didst save and deliver humankind: Grant that by stedfast faith in the merits of that holy sacrifice we may find help and salvation, and may triumph in the power of his victory; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
O GOD, who didst will that thy Son should suffer death upon the cross, that thou mightest deliver us from the snares of the enemy: Grant that by the merits of his death we may know the power of his resurrection; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
O GOD, whose blessed Son did overcome death for our salvation: Mercifully grant that we who have his glorious passion in remembrance may take up our cross daily and follow him; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
O LORD God, whose blessed Son did bear our sins in his own body on the tree: Give us, we pray thee, such true repentance and amendment of life, that we may never crucify him afresh, and put him to an open shame by conscious and wilful sin; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
O GOD, whose blessed Son did suffer for all humankind: Grant unto us that, rightly observing this holy season, we may learn to know thee better, to love thee more, and to serve thee with a more perfect will; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
