Palm Sunday – Words for Worship (Year B)

Call to Worship (adapted from Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29)

Give thanks to the Lord, for the Lord is good; God’s steadfast love endures forever!

God’s steadfast love endures forever!

This is the day that the Lord has made;

let us rejoice and be glad in it!

The Lord is God; the Lord has given us light.  (If you are using glow sticks, break them as you say “light”.)

Lead the procession with branches waving, all the way to the altar.

Give thanks to the Lord, for the Lord is good;

God’s steadfast love endures forever!

 

Prayer of Confession (inspired by John 12:12-16)

Lord, like the great crowds that met you in Jerusalem, we wave palm branches and shout your praises.  We delight that you come to us proclaiming peace, but we confess that we still speak of war.  Forgive our fickle hearts, Lord.  Teach us to bless your name by more closely following your way.  Hosanna, Lord!  Save us from our sins – save us from ourselves.  We pray in your holy name.
