Prayer of Intercession: Palm Sunday

Here’s a prayer of intercession for Palm / Passion Sunday from John van de Laar’s Sacredise website.  It is part of a longer Communion Liturgy for Palm Sunday.

Prayers of Request for Palm Sunday

O Lord our God,
We bring You the needs of our world,
  broken by division and suspicion,
  by hatred and war.
We bring You the needs of our land,
the hungry and homeless,
  the wounded and despairing.
We bring you the needs of ourselves and our loved ones,
seeking Your peace and healing,
  Your wisdom and protection.

Additional prayers may be offered here.

Hear us, O God, and come to us,
In compassion and love rescue and  restore us,
And make us a people in whom Your gentle reign is seen.
Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer is spoken together.
