Holy Week 1 – JUDAS

Matthew 26:1-5, 14-16, 47-50

Lord Jesus Christ – betrayed by a friend – pour out your grace on
those who have been betrayed by those who have denied them their understanding
those who live with overwhelming guilt
those who have reached the point of no return
those who have forgiven their betrayer
those who keep you at a distance
those who seek to control you by their deepest convictions

and forgive the people who bear your name when they betray you
and by this grace transform us all. Amen.
