Palm (olive) branches – joy, victory
Donkey/colt – humility, peace
Road weary cloaks
Celebration, processional, multi-generational crowd
Bright shades of purple
Prayer of the Day
(Dr. Cynthia A Wilson, 2/2020)
Lord God, You are good! Your goodness never ends;
Here we are God, the crowd has thinned out, it is eerily quiet;
The air has shifted, the palms have been trampled, the sky is gray;
The joy has disappeared, the voices of victory are silent;
The celebration for the arrival of Our long awaited Messianic Hope is waning;
The road ahead is long, but we are able! It is the way of suffering, we are able!
Mold us and make us like Thee divine.
Even in our human frailty, You are still good!
Even in our doubts, You are still good!
Even in the face of betrayal, You are still good!
We place our lives are in your hands, because you are still good!
And your goodness never ends,
And so we cry Hosanna!
