Palm Sunday Marriage Prayer*

Today is Palm Sunday; and during this Holy week, many Christians remember or Mark the use of the word “Hosanna” on this day. According to Wikipedia, it is stated that  “the word hosanna (Latin osannaGreekὡσαννά, hōsanná) is from Hebrewהושיעה־נא, הושיעה נא hôshia-nā’ which is short for hôšî‘â-nā’ from Aramaicהושע נא meaning “save, rescue, savior”.
In the Hebrew Bible it is used only in verses such as “help” or “save, I pray” (Psalms 118:25).
It is applied in numerous verses of theNew Testament including “Hosanna; blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord” (Mark 11.9)”
When we look in God’s Word, Mark 11:9, VOICE, says ” People walked ahead of them, and others followed behind.
People (shouting): Hosanna!
Rescue us now, Lord! Hosanna!
Blessed be the One who comes in the name of the Eternal One!”
Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the back of an ass to the crowd’s jubilant cries of “Hosanna…!” as they waved palm branches and laid them on the ground in His path. They gave Jesus a heroic welcome into Jerusalem; and it was the beginning of His procession to his death at the Cross by week’s end, followed by His glorious resurrection.
Many of us need to do just as the crowdgoers did in Jerusalem. We need to shout and cry out HOSANNA to the HIGHEST!!! We need to roll out the red carpet for Jesus to be at the center of our marriages! We need to be willing and ready to put everything on the line for our marriages to the glory of GOD!!! We need to know that Jesus has come, and He died a victorious death and our Father resurrected Him! God can resurrect dead marriages too! When we give our all, only to experience torturing pain, suffering, mocking from others for standing by God’s Word and doing His will, our marriages can be a reflection of the Holy love Jesus has for His bride, the church. Let this week be a revival, a remembrance of JESUS’  love and victory so we are inspired to have that same sacrificial, agape love in our marriages.
Father God,
Give us the heart to get on our donkeys and be willing to enter into agreement with Your Holy plan for our marriages. There are many standing on the sidelines of their marriage and crying out to be rescued and saved from their trials and tribulations. Transform the cries of defeat to cries of jubilation and manifest in husbands’ and wives’ hearts that we already have the victory in Christ Jesus!!! Give us the courage to walk out our purpose just as Jesus walked out His, even unto death. Strengthen our perseverance and faith so we too can die to our flesh and sacrifice the life it appears we should have in favor of a Holy life that prepares us for eternal life with You. Let our hearts become beautiful as we walk them to the foot of the Cross willingly to sacrifice our pride, wrath, lust, envy, greed, and all sinful desires. Let our hearts die to self so You can resurrect real love which is JESUS in our hearts so they beat beautiful humbleness and holiness. Lord, We cry Hosanna and Hallelujah! !!! For You came and changed eternity and we thank You for saving us and giving us triumphant authority in JESUS’ name, WE PRAISE YOU AND HONOR YOU. YOU DESERVE ALL THE HONOR AND GLORY. Be the center of our marriages, in Jesus’ name, AMEN.
