Lent, Day 35

I came across this prayer in a book called, A Book of A Thousand Prayers.  It contains prayers for all sort of occasions.  The authorship of this prayer is unknown.

Jesus, Lord of the Journey,
we thank you
that you set your face firmly towards Jerusalem,
with a single eye and pure intention,
knowing what lay ahead by never turning aside.
Jesus, Lord of the Palms,
we thank you 
that you enjoyed the Hallelujahs of ordinary people,
living fully in that moment of delight
and accepting their praise.
Jesus, Lord of the Cross,
we thank you
that you went into the hearts of our evil and pain,
along a way that was both terrible and wonderful,
as your kingship became your brokenness
and your dying became love's triumph.

Blessings on your Holy Week.
-Laurie
