Prayers of the People

Let us enter in to prayer this morning with this prayer of praise on our lips found in 1 Chronicles 29:11-13 ERV

Greatness, power, glory, victory, and honor belong to you, because everything in heaven and on earth belongs to you! The kingdom belongs to you, LORD! You are the head, the Ruler over everything. Riches and honor come from you. You rule everything. You have the power and strength in your hand! And in your hand is the power to make anyone great and powerful! Now, our God, we thank you, and we praise your glorious name!

Let us Pray

Leader: Lord we pray to celebrate Palm Sunday as the crowds that greeted Christ that day in sincerity, saying “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

People: Merciful Savior, we come before you rejoicing in your triumphant entry into Jerusalem. Lead us to turn our hearts again to your most powerful acts of love lived out in your life, death, and resurrection as we enter into Holy Week. Stir up within us the gift of faith. May we not only praise you with our lips but sacrificially follow you to the cross.

Leader: Father God, Your Word is true, and You are faithful. You promised salvation through the Messiah and today we remember that Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies of our promised Redeemer. We acknowledge our need for salvation from our sins and rejoice that Jesus is our Deliverer.

People: Grant us the willingness to see and confess our sins.. See the desires of our hearts and forgive as we earnestly repent and seek to follow you faithfully. We give thanks for Christ who took our sins upon himself – suffering pain and death. It is with thanksgiving and praise that we rejoice in your resurrection and our salvation.

Leader: We pray for those who are persecuted around the world for faithfully sharing the gospel and living their faith. We lift the people of the Ukraine to you. Lord, grant all your strength and mercy.

People: Lord, hear our prayer.

Leader: We pray for all who are sick and grieving many kinds of loss. Hear our prayers for those on the prayer chain who have requested prayer. Care for their needs as only you can.

People: Lord, hear our prayer.

Leader: Today we pray for America and our leaders. Lord, be all who place themselves in danger for our care. We ask you to send holy revival to our land. Make us mindful of our many blessings.

People: Lord, hear our prayer.

Leader: We ask for your continued guidance and protection upon Alexander Chapel UMC. Make us good stewards of all you have entrusted to our care. Guide our church leaders and the mission you have for this church. We pray for all the special services that will take place this Holy Week. Move in us to participate and to creatively invite others to come with us. Make us ready to receive friends as they join in remembering the week’s events of your journey to the cross.

Leader: Prepare our hearts for the magnificent joy of the resurrection we will experience on Easter Morning.!

People: Today, we ask you to speak through Pastor Ray with your words of holy transformation as he brings the message. May hearts receive you holy hope. Send us out ready to be your faithful servants.

Leader: We make our prayer in the name of victorious Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, who gave us an example of prayer when he prayed

All: Lord’s Prayer
