how do we pray this on Good Friday

so many of us, believers,
seeking to follow, to be Christ,
to bear witness fully
to take on His yoke
praying to be His hands and feet
to share his ministry, his love
to be Christ in the world
as we are called
yet how do we pray this on Good Friday
in our pain, in our sorrow
knowing he took on the sins of the world
and chose to climb the cross
how do we say these words
how is this our prayer
on the darkest day of the year
when Christ climbed the cross
