Preparing for palms

Prayer of Confession
O God, we stand at the gate, hesitant and uncertain.  
At times we are unwilling to answer your invitation; 
slow to take steps into the journey toward your Kingdom.
Forgive us, we pray.
Help us to embrace the joy and the pain 
which comes of following you,
of loving others, 
of accepting ourselves.
Grant us the courage to join you in the procession;
the selflessness to lay our cloaks before you;
the freedom to lift our palms to your glory;
and the knowledge that by your grace we are forgiven. Amen.

Hear this good news!  The procession is ever moving forward.  
We can join at any moment.  The invitation still stands!  Come through the
gate on your journey.  Do not be afraid–walk with Jesus, in whose name
you are forgiven!
