Prayer 1159- For Holy Saturday

The fourteenth station- Jesus is placed in the tomb

Almighty God, we wait in the darkness before the dawn of your Son, remembering and blessing him, now and forever.
In stillness the earth pauses, and awaits the resurrection: hear our prayers, O Comforter. 
We turn our faces toward hope, awaiting the coming of the third day: we know You share our sorrows and pain. 
Help us renounce the evils that chain us, O Lord: roll away the stone of our hearts, we pray. 
Lord Christ, you prayed forgiveness for your enemies even upon the cross: help us so renounce vengeance and strife.
Bless those for whom we pray, O Merciful One, and pour your comfort like a balm over them.
