A Prayer on Palm Sunday
Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, the high point of the Church Year. Pause for a few moments to become aware of God’s presence and pray:
Loving Father, with palm branches
we recall when Jesus was welcomed by crowds
into the city of Jerusalem.
Bless us with your Spirit as we prepare to journey
through Holy Week.
May we find time to listen again
to the story of the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus.
There, may we discover the love of God, which knows no bounds.
We bring with us our suffering and pain, our worry and loss
and the suffering, pain, worry and loss of the whole world at this time. May we hear proclaimed this coming Easter Day that Jesus is risen! May we have our hope renewed in God
who brings good out of bad and even life out of death. Amen
Glory be to the Father …
