Prayer for Liverpool
Today in the life of the Church is Palm Sunday, the day when we remember Jesus’ journey into Jerusalem on a donkey. The mood, as Jesus journeys into Jerusalem, is one of praise as people shout their hosannas. The mood, however, quickly changes and, as we journey through this coming week, Holy Week, we observe that final week in the life of Jesus, this is a time that is full of emotion as we see Jesus suffer betrayal, torture, crucifixion and eventually death. As we observe and engage with Jesus in his last week, we see the fickleness of people and the human heart, but we also see the love of God.
We invite you to join in worship for Palm Sunday with us here:
There is also the opportunity to engage with today’s Psalm through Breakfast and the Bible in this document:
If you want to continue to reflect on today’s themes, then please do use ‘Exploring the Sunday Gospel at Home.’ The aim of ‘Exploring the Sunday Gospel at Home’ is for people and families to look at the Sunday Gospel in advance of Sundays and to prepare themselves for the coming Sunday worship. So do please look out for next Sunday’s material from Tuesday onwards. You’ll find the “Exploring the Sunday Gospel at Home” documents on the “Prayer Resources” page and under the “Worship” column: https://www.prayerforliverpool.org/prayer-resources.html.
You will also find Children’s activities from the Cathedral Education Team on the “Prayer Resources” page of this website under the “Education” column: https://www.prayerforliverpool.org/prayer-resources.html.
Also, read this excellent reflection about Palm Sunday during these present times from one of our Chapter members, Canon Andrew Holroyd:
If you wish to journey with us through Holy Week, then please do continue to read the blog and use the various worship and reflective services that will be on the web-site from tomorrow. Apart from Tuesday we are hoping to have a form of worship and Prayer everyday as we journey towards Good Friday and Easter Day.
Have a good Palm Sunday.
