*CALL TO WORSHIP                        
   
On this day of great rejoicing, Lord Jesus Christ, when we welcome You as our King and
Savior, we also walk in the shadow of Your cross.

Hosanna! we cry. Blessed are You who comes in God’s name to save us. Hosanna!
Strengthen our faith on this Palm Sunday so that when the time comes to carry the cross we
might still call out to You with heartfelt praise.

Give us the grace and the courage to follow You this Holy Week from death to resurrection,
from darkness to the fullness of light.  We need You, Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior.
Hosanna!

*Spirit Prayer        
                       
Almighty God,
       on this day your Son Jesus Christ entered the holy city of Jerusalem and was
proclaimed King by those who spread their garments and palm branches along his way.  Let
those branches be for us signs of his victory, and grant that we who bear them in his name
may ever hail him as our Lord, and follow him in the way that leads to eternal life.  In his
name we pray.  -AMEN
