Hosanna! means “Save us!” This is a prayer from this morning’s Lectio 365 devotional based on this word:
Father, as Your Church gathers around the world today, I join with crowds in Jerusalem and cry out ‘Hosanna’! Lord, save us from being inwardly focused; propel us out to tell the story of Your love this Easter.
Jesus, I pray on behalf of my friends and family members who don’t know You and I say ‘Hosanna! Lord, save us’ – make Yourself known to each of them this week.
Spirit, on this Palm Sunday, I lift the leaders of my nation to You and I pray ‘Hosanna! Lord, save them’; draw them closer to Jesus. May their leadership be characterised by His wisdom and humility.
