Palm Sunday Meditation

Meditation

Jesus, King of the universe,
ride on in humble majesty:

Lord, this Palm Sunday may I recognize in you
the Lord who comes to his world, and join with
full heart in the children’s ‘hosanna’.

Ride on, through conflict and debate,
ride on through sweaty prayer and betrayal of friends:

Lord, this Palm Sunday forgive me my evasions of truth, my carelessness
of your honour; my weakness which leaves me sleeping even while
in others you suffer and are anguished; my cowardice that does not risk
the consequences of publicly acknowledging you as Lord.

Ride on to the empty tomb and your rising in triumph,
Ride on to raise up your Church, a new body for your service;
Ride on, King Jesus, to renew the whole earth in your image,
in compassion come to help us.

“So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him,
crying out, ‘Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the
name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!'”
