Holy Week Prayers-Palm Sunday

palm sunday 2

“They brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks across its back, and he sat on it.” (Mark 11:7)

Holy God,

You are the King of Kings
Yet demonstrated your humility by riding in to Jerusalem on a donkey
while the masses yelled
‘Holy, Holy, Holy, Hosanna in the highest’

You could have chosen to demonstrate power and might
By riding in with an army and weapons in order to create fear and awe
Just like the rest of the world does

Instead, you made yourself vulnerable, weak

Help us to follow your example this week
Give us courage to give up our love of power
And instead embrace the power of love
