Aah, it is another Super Sunday Morning our Lord, and we cry out that ALL your people will praise you! Let ALL the nations be glad and sing for joy, because YOU Lord judge with equity and guide all nations upon the earth. Let the people praise you; let EVERYONE with breath, praise you!
Hear our voices, O LORD, according to your loving-kindness; according to your judgments, give us life. We cry out, “Hosanna, LORD, hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” Father, shine upon us; Draw the hearts of everyone to exalt and praise your Name!
Open the gates of righteousness, and we will enter them; we will offer thanks to our LORD and King. “This is the gate of the LORD;* those of you he who are righteous may enter. We will honor and give thanks to you, because you answer us whenever we call and have become our salvation. We cry out that the same stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone of our faith and the strength of our lives. This IS our LORD’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes. Today, the LORD has acted and we will rejoice and be glad in it. Hosanna, LORD, hosanna!
LORD, send us now success. Blessed is anyone who comes in the name of the Lord; we bless you from everything that we are! You are our God, and we thank you; you are our God, and we exalt you. We cry out to all the people in the word: “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his mercy endure for ever!”
Oh we so wish that if just our families, could recognize that glorify your Name. Move on the hearts of those we love. Calm the hearts of those who are angry, bring healing for those who are angry and alone. Conquer the fear that may be in their hearts.
We ask you to move on the hearts of our parents, brothers and sisters, our children. Please, Holy Spirit of our God, chase them down, hound them, pester them. Surround them with people who know you and are sensitive to your instructions to touch the hearts of our family members. Bring each one of them into your Kingdom and show them wonder you have shown us. Help them to understand how magnificent you are!
Today, as we gather together to worship and adore you, loose your Spirit to teach us; to encourage us; to soften our hearts and bring healing to our families and to our own hearts. Do not allow us to take another step, without acknowledging your greatness!
Today, we WILL rejoice, because this is a day YOU have made! Amen, and Amen! ~Nickolas Hiemstra
