the acat prayer

Lord Jesus,

You experienced in person what it is like to have a death sentence hanging over you.

You were plotted against, betrayed by a friend, and arrested under cover of darkness by men who came with clubs and swords.

 

You were tortured, beaten and humiliated; sentenced to an agonising death, though you had done no wrong.

Be now with prisoners throughout the world. Be with them in the darkness of the dungeon, in the loneliness of separation from those they love.

Be with them in their fear of what may come to them, in the agony of their torture and in the face of execution and death.

Stretch out your hands in mercy to all who have need of you at this time.

Amen
