* Opening Hymn Hosanna, Loud Hosanna  Hymn #197 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
Gracious God, on this day when many welcomed Jesus into their city and hailed him as the Savior, it is fitting that we join them, welcoming him into
our lives. But we are hesitant. We know he asks much of us. And we want so much to control our own lives, follow our own dreams, be as we want
to be. Forgive our self-centeredness, and open us more to the ways and attitudes of Jesus. For we pray it in his name. Amen.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, was risen for us, and reigns in power over us. Sisters and brothers hear this good news. Through Christ we are forgiven and reconciled with the Creator of all.

Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

Anthem Holy City  solo by Vern Sutton

Prayer for Illumination
Lord, open our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit, that as the Scriptures are read and your Word is proclaimed, we may hear with joy what you say to us today. Amen
