“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

– John 3:16

Seek God together

Take turns voicing sentence prayers of praise to God. Everyone can use this sentence as a guide and fill in the blank: “Hosanna! Jesus, You are our Rescuer! Thank you for ________________.

Then pray the Lord’s Prayer together:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory now and forever. Amen.

Celebrate together

Unlike the crowds who were shouting Hosanna when Jesus entered Jerusalem, we know Jesus came to die and rise again! We know what He went through to save us! We have so much more to praise Him for! Let’s celebrate together!
