Gracious and loving Father, you are the God of relationship. May we have true and valued conversation with our friends as we celebrate Palm Sunday. May your story go deep into the hearts of non-believers and believers alike. May your truth be known. May many come to know your glory. I ask in the precious name of Jesus, who gave his all on the cross for our sin, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering.” (Hebrews 2:10 ESV)
