Here’s a prayer of petition and commitment inspired by the events of Palm Sunday. It was written by Ann Siddall and posted on the Stillpoint Spirituality Centre website.
It is relatively easy for us
to roster someone
to go and gather palm leaves
to spread in the church today.
And we can easily find music
and a few good words
to help us to remember
and re-enact Palm Sunday.
But what if You arrived
inviting us to really lay down
something important to us
to acknowledge Your arrival?
What if we knew the imminence
of the danger that accompanies You,
or sensed that the authorities
were watching us as we worship?
How then, Jesus, would we meet You today.
and what would we spread before You?
And how would we regard humility
from the One we hope will save the world?
Palm Sunday Jesus, help us to see
how and where You enter our world today,
and what You ask us to lay at your feet,
and how we may welcome You in. Amen.
