Divine One, as I follow you on the road to the cross and the empty tomb, I draw closer still, while I continue to pray these words from the song in Godspell,
Day by day, oh, dear Lord,
three things I pray
To see thee more clearly
Love thee more dearly
Follow thee more nearly, day by day
Scripture Luke 19:35b-40
“after throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it.
As he rode along, people kept spreading their cloaks on the road.
As he was now approaching the path down from the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen, saying, “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!” Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, order your disciples to stop.” He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.”
Prayer of Response
Our Holy One,
We humbly bow before you in praise and adoration
for all who you are, and all you have done.
We follow you closely
through the journey of this week.
Awaken us to notice your undying love,
Your unswerving intention,
And your continual focus on us.
Help us to take this in.
We love you oh Gracious One.
