Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord Jesus, may we worship and receive You this day with joy and enthusiasm, even as the crowds of old did as You entered Jerusalem that first Palm Sunday. Fill our hearts with an understanding of Your truths and a commitment to prove ourselves faithful in Your kingdom. It is in Your saving name that we pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 8

First Reading: 

Isaiah 50:4-9

The promised Savior here speaks of His willingness to face His adversary and fulfill the will of the Lord God. He was willing to do so, even though it would involve great suffering, for He knew He would ultimately triumph!

Second Reading: 

Matthew 21:1-11

Jesus entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday amid the shouts and praise of the onlooking crowds. He entered Jerusalem "in the name of the Lord" and determined to fulfill His calling to suffer, after which He would be raised to glory as our King!
