A prayer for Palm Sunday based on John 19: 16 -22
Lord Jesus Christ,
on this day, your disciples crowned you King
and we have joined their praise.
Yet, you are a King like no other.
You are on your way to suffering and to death
leading us into freedom and salvation and peace.
You offer your very self to heal our brokenness.
You take our violence and fears and hatreds
into your own life
and give back only love.
We pause now before this awesome mystery
watching as your power moves
beyond our weakness
beyond our failures
beyond our sins
Move us deeper into this holy story
and bring us into the wide open spaces of your grace
for yours is the kingdom,
yours is the power,
yours is the glory,
now and forever. Amen
