Today is Palm Sunday – the day that commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. As Jesus entered on a colt, the large crowd spread their cloaks on the ground & waving branches shouted praise to Him.
We should praise & bless You above all else, O holy Father in heaven, for You are our God & Creator. You molded & made us in Your image, and You have blessed us much more than any other creature.
And for this we acknowledge, O holy Father, that we, more than any other creature, owe You praise, thanksgiving, and blessing. Therefore we fall to our knees before You. Amen.

“And those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” (Matthew 21:9 NIV84)
