Songs we sang on Sunday:
- He is Our God,
- God Undefeatable,
- This is Amazing Grace,
- All Glory be to Christ, and
- On Jordan’s Stormy Banks.
Scripture and Prayer:
Matthew 21:5, 8-11
“Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’”
Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting,
“Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”
And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?” And the crowds said, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.”
O Lord Christ, as you once entered Jerusalem, enter our hearts this day afresh.
As you once set your face toward death on a cross, help us this day to walk with you to victory.
As the people once cried “Hosanna” to bless you, enable us to confess you openly as Lord and Savior.
Grant us your presence by the power of your Spirit, that our worship and our lives may truly honor you.
We open our eyes to see your glory.
We open our ears to hear your wisdom.
We open our hands to offer you gifts.
We open our mouths to sing your praise.
We open our hearts to offer you our love.
Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
