First Scripture Reading
Isaiah 42: 1-7
Gospel Reading
John 12: 1-11

Opening Prayer

Holy God, Jesus is Your servant and our Savior. With powerful gentleness, He will establish Your reign of justice. He will abolish all darkness and division. In His sacrifice and surrender, You seal Your covenant of love with us, filling us with the light of Your presence. Jesus, Mary anoints You in preparation for Your passing over. Judas disdains Your priorities. I experience both loving Mary and suspicious Judas with me. Jesus, like Lazarus, lift me up. Take my hand and touch my heart so that I can humbly and faithfully walk with You into Jerusalem – and to God!
