Christine Sine who runs the Godspace blog wrote and posted this prayer for Palm Sunday last year, but it is new to me this year as I was not online much at all last year during Lent or Holy Week.
Let us enter the city with God today
Let us sing hosanna to our king
To the son of God riding on a donkey
With shepherds and prostitutes,
With the blind and the leper
With the abandoned and oppressed
Let us shout for joy at Christ’s coming
And follow the One who welcomes the sinner and dines with the outcast
Let us touch and see as God draws near
Riding in Triumph towards the Cross
May we invite Jesus to come into our lives more deeply this Holy Week, rejoicing that He welcomes ALL to follow Him.
May we allow Him to draw near.
May we take up our cross to follow Him.
May we be renewed in the hope of His eternal triumph!
