Lord God, Almighty and everlasting Father, it is You who has brought us in safety to this new day. 

Preserve us with Your mighty power. 

Help us to not be overcome by adversity.  

By Your strength and direction fulfill Your purpose in us. 

We pray for those who are hurting this day, those who are sick, and those who seek to bring about their healing.  

We ask You to heal, strengthen, protect, and comfort them.

 In the Name of Jesus, Amen.


The Lord’s Prayer  (Click link to listen then close song page to return)

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

Dear Lord, We ask that You give us Your Wisdom. 

Speak to us through Your Word and Your Spirit, so we will know Your love and guidance. 

Lord, we confess that we do not always do what You want us to do.

We humbly ask for Your promised forgiveness. 

Lead us in the paths of righteousness for Your Name sake. 

Thank You that You are faithful and just to forgive us from all unrighteousness.

In Jesus' Name, Amen.

SCRIPTURES ~  Matthew 21:1-15 (NIV)

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

21 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”


4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:


5 “Say to Daughter Zion,

    ‘See, your king comes to you,

gentle and riding on a donkey,

    and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”

6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. 7 They

brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for

Jesus to sit on. 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road,

while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.


9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,


“Hosanna to the Son of David!”


“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”


“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”


10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”

11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”


Jesus at the Temple

12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. 13 “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.’”

14 The blind and the lame came to him at the temple, and he healed them. 15 But when the chief priests and the teachers of the law saw the wonderful things he did and the children shouting in the temple courts, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they were indignant.
