Discerning God's Will: Turned Away from God


Good Friday, April 15, 2022

Prayer for Holy Week

Journey with us, O holy God, as we continue our way to the cross. Sharpen our focus, that our attention may center more on you than ourselves. Lead us through the shadows of darkness and prepare our hearts, that we might be a people of prayer, trust and obedience. Help us truly see and respond to your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.


Isaiah 53:3-6

He was despised and rejected by others;

    a man of suffering and acquainted with infirmity;

and as one from whom others hide their faces

    he was despised, and we held him of no account.

Surely he has borne our infirmities

    and carried our diseases;

yet we accounted him stricken,

    struck down by God, and afflicted.

But he was wounded for our transgressions,

    crushed for our iniquities;

upon him was the punishment that made us whole,

    and by his bruises we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray;

    we have all turned to our own way,

and the Lord has laid on him

    the iniquity of us all.



What are some ways we have “turned to our own way?”




What are some ways we have despised or rejected God?
