Palm Sunday

 

God of liberation, we stand before you today with all who suffer because of injustice.

 

With those who are hungry and thirsty, whose food is stolen by greed, war and famine.

Lead your children to liberty

 

For those who are angry, bitter or imprisoned, because of unfairness.

Lead your children to liberty

 

For those who have given up hope, whose grief has no light at the end of the tunnel, who believe they have been ignored, forgotten or betrayed.

Lead your children to liberty

 

For governments that could make such a difference, but who fail to work for justice

Lead your children to liberty

 

For your church, when it is paralysed by laziness, indifference or fear.

Lead your children to liberty.

 

God of liberation, may the glorious light of your Gospel reach into the darkest corners of our world and our lives, and open the eyes of your people’s hearts, that we – even we - might embody your compassion, your healing power, and your self-giving love.
