24B – Passion Sunday

23B - Lent 5B24B - Palm Sunday OR 25B Monday in Holy Week

PSALM 31:9-16
Be gracious, O LORD,
for I am in distress;
my eye is wasting with anger,
my inner being as well as my stomach
For my life is consumed by grief
and my years in groaning.
My strength fails because of my distress
and my bones become weak.
Because of my oppressors I am a disgrace;
to my neighbours, I’m a disaster,
to my acquaintances, a cause for trembling .
Seeing me in the street they flee from me
I am forgotten like one who is dead,
and have become like a broken pot.
For I have heard the whispering of the crowd, terror all around –
scheming together, plotting to take my life.
But I – I trust in you, O LORD;
I say, “You are my God.”
My days are in your hands;
snatch me from the hand of my enemies and pursuers.
Let your face shine on your servant;
save me in your steadfast love.

Source of life,
Word of life,
Breath of life
console us and keep us
as we live each day following the way of Jesus.
May the gifts which we offer
and those which the Spirit gives to each of us,
be joined to serve this broken world.
And so may we await with hope
the new day of the Lord. Amen

(A prayer to gather the spoken and silent concerns/joys/thanks expressed by the congregation and lead into a more structured Intercession with connection to the lections for the day. Sometimes this prayer will borrow lightly from other sources e.g. Uniting in Worship 2 or publications of the Iona Community.)

God of all grace,
in you is hope: hope which has endured throughout every age.
In that hope we remember before you now
those we have named on our lips and in the silence of our hearts…
By your Word and your Spirit
help us bring consolation to those know to us,
return to our memory those whom we have forgotten
and be present to those who have no-one …
