Palm Sunday Reading: Luke 19:29–40
Prayer of Adoration
We praise you, O God,
for your redemption of the world through Jesus Christ.
He entered the holy city of Jerusalem in triumph
and was proclaimed Messiah and King
by those who spread garments and branches along his way.
Just as we carry these branches,
may we follow Christ in the way of the cross,
that, dying and rising with him, we may enter into your kingdom,
through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit, now and forever.
May the God who sent his Son
so that we could be adopted as God’s own children,
send his Spirit into your hearts
—especially in this week of remembrance and renewal—
and equip you to live as God’s own children,
dearly loved and called to serve a needy world.
