“Triumphant God, we wave palm branches and sing loud hosannas to honor the One who comes in your name. Bless these branches that they may serve as a reminder of your majesty and our praise. We are mindful that we are beginning a week of sorrow and pain. Bless us as we leave the palms behind and begin our journey toward the cross. May our joy and hope in you sustain us in the days ahead.” from Celebrating At Home copyright 1998 by Payden and Loving.
“Infinite, intimate God; this night you kneel before your friends and wash our feet. Bound together in your love, trembling, we drink your cup and watch”…from A New Zealand Prayer Book, copyright 1989, page 585.
“God of hope and deliverance, we wait in the gloominess of Good Friday. All creation mourns this day. We cry for the cruel death of your Child. We cry because the world is still filled with such pain and brokenness. Forgive us for adding to that pain and brokenness. Accept our tears this day. May our grief turn soon to gladness.” from Celebrating at Home by Payden and Loving, copyright 1998, page 58.
“We all are one in mission, we all are one in call, our varied gifts united by Christ, the Lord of all.”
