*Call to Worship
Leader: 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
All: Hosanna in the highest!
*Hymn of Praise
Observing Lent through Symbols—Palms
Matthew 21: 6-11
Lord Jesus, the crowds
shouted their hosannas; we, too, praise you because you
king. Help us to persuade others to also acknowledge you as
Leader: …in your
“Lord, hear our prayer.”
WE TALK TO GOD THROUGH
Praises, Joys and Concerns
Pastoral Prayer and Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this
day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
