Opening Prayer: Palm Sunday

Here’s an opening prayer for Palm/Passion Sunday. It was written by John Birch, on the Faith and Worship website.

Opening Prayer

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, daughter of Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you; righteous and having salvation,
gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.(Zechariah 9:9)

As the people spread their coats palm branches on the ground to welcome Jesus into Jerusalem, so we welcome him into our lives this morning. King of Glory, King of Peace, Servant King, reign in our hearts and lives this day and all days, that we might praise your holy name.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest!
