Palm Sunday 2021

March 28, 2021

Today’s prayer is adapted from Ps. 5:4-12; See also Luke 19:41-44

Forgive us Lord when we fail to see the path to peace and follow those who lead with false promises.

Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their hearts are filled with destruction.

And we follow at our peril for you are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell.

The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.

You destroy all who tell lies.

Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, because they falsely claim your name.

Shield us Lord, and retrieve those who have gone astray. Lead us in your better way that we may avoid the fate of Jerusalem.

Amen
