First Reading
Psalm 118:19-29
19  Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the LORD.
20  This is the gate of the LORD through which the righteous may enter.
21  I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.
22  The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone
23  the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.
24  This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
25  O LORD, save us; O LORD, grant us success.
26  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD. From the house of the LORD we bless you.
27  The LORD is God, and he has made his light shine upon us. With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession up to the horns of the altar.
28  You are my God, and I will give you thanks; you are my God, and I will exalt you.
29  Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Sermon Scripture Reading
John 12:12-19
12  The next day the great crowd that had come for the Feast heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem.
13  They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna! " "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Blessed is the King of Israel!"
14  Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written,
15  Do not be afraid, O Daughter of Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey's colt.
16  At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that they had done these things to him.
17  Now the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to spread the word. 
18  Many people, because they had heard that he had given this miraculous sign, went out to meet him.
 19  So the Pharisees said to one another, "See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!"

"Overwhelmed?

In Whom Do We Believe? Explanation to the First Article of The Apostles? Creed
I believe that God has made me and all creatures; that he has given me my body and soul, eyes, ears, and all my members, my reason and all my senses, and still takes care of them.  He also gives me clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and home, spouse and children, land, animals, and all I have.  He richly and daily provides me with all that I need to support this body and life.  He defends me against all danger and guards and protects me from all evil.  All this he does only out of fatherly, divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in me.  For all this it is my duty to thank and praise, serve and obey him.  This is most certainly true.

Prayers Of The Day

The Lord?s Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever.  Amen.
