Palm Sunday Prayer

And do we yet understand, Lord Jesus, as the year go by and we hear the story again?

Can a poor man on a donkey dying like a slave succeed?

We like success so much, the kind you feel and touch and put your hands on right away.

What success can anyone find in a Cross?

Or is there success in faithfulness?

When you can say:
“Your will be done!”
“Father, forgive them.”

Like the two from Emmaus we hope for easy gain.

Come walk at our side, and tell us what matters most,O Lord.

Amen.
