Palm Sunday Blessing

I worship you Lord! You did not enter you holy city Jerusalem on the back of a war horse, but humbly and on a donkey.

You knew that you were surrounded by murderers, yet you came in peace, and by your sacrifice you would utterly conquer death before the week had passed.

You, oh Lord, are blessed and worthy of my praise. You have saved your people. I say, "you are my King!". 

I long to live in the city where you sit on the throne! Establish your Kingdom, so that your people can live in peace.

Jesus, I bow before you, and I will sing your praises until your Kingdom comes and is established, and forever after.

This blessing was shared with my via e-mail by a friend and I thought it was worth sharing this Holy week; blessings to you all....


  1. Thanks for the reminder of what this season represents.

  2. During the Palm Sunday responses it is always brought home to me that WE are the ones who Crucified Him...and in spite of our failures, He loves us unconditionally. What a blessing and a gift, so undeserved.
    Beautiful post....thank you.

  3. The greatest act of terror in that day was for the Romans to crucify someone.

    Our Pastor was saying yesterday in his homily that the late Pope John Paul reflected in his autobiography the act- Jesus death on the cross turned what was terror into the greatest act of love in the history of Gods earth.

    And when(The Pope) viewed a crucifix; of our crucified Lord on the cross he saw Love not violence.


I'm always interested in what you have to say...
