PALM SUNDAY WORSHIP AT HOME
April 5, 2020
CALL TO WORSHIP (from Psalm 118)
O give thanks to the Lord, for God is good!
God’s steadfast love endures forever!
This is the day the Lord has made!
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the
name of the Lord!
Hosanna! Save us! Amen
HYMNAL #89 Hosanna, Loud Hosanna
CALL TO CONFESSION
Let us face this day of palms and Jesus’ passion
with honesty, confessing our sin before God.
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Holy God, sure of your faithfulness even in your dying,
comforted by your compassion toward your people
in every age, forgive our short-comings.
We have withheld from your people, our neighbors,
and from your creation, our Earth, the care and tending
they deserve. We have rejected the cornerstone you sent to build a people of righteousness.
Heal what we have broken, nurture what we have neglected and lead us to your vision, so that we may know the peace of wholeness in you; in Jesus’ name.
(keep a time of silent confession)
ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS
Our God has come to us humble in the form of a slave to free us from the weight of sin and death. Jesus’ obedient suffering has released us. Friends, this is good news: in Jesus Christ we are forgiven!
THE NOW TESTAMENT – Where have you shared Christ’s forgiveness or peace and love this week?
