An Invitation to Walk With Christ on Good Friday

Prayerfully walking through the stations of the cross is one way we can keep vigil with Christ during these holy days, and as a part of our Holy Week observance we are inviting you to keep vigil through our Stations of the Cross Prayer Guide. Traditionally, there are fourteen Stations of the Cross—most of them taken directly from Scripture, along with a few that have been passed down in Christian tradition — all designed to direct our hearts to watch and wait for the Lord in prayer.


Stations of the Cross Prayer Guide is included in our Lenten Resource, Lent: A Season of Returning, and is a reverent guide for individuals, families, and congregations alike. These thirty pages of prayer are illustrated with fourteen compelling and historical artistic renderings of Jesus’ last hours so that, as much as possible, we can experience Christ’s road to the cross as the long and arduous journey that it was.
