Sunday Worship April 5, 2020

As Jesus approached Jerusalem for the Passover Festival, crowds of people shouted and sang, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord."

Hosanna is a Hebrew word calling to be saved or rescued. The crowds proclaimed Jesus the savior from God. To need a savior is to admit that we need help, that we can't do it ourselves.

In Philippians 4:6-7 the Apostle Paul writes, "Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

We can bring our requests before God, the one who is bigger than our problems, but the real blessing is to pray with thanksgiving, not just need and anxiety.

In the midst of our anxious times, we asked people from the congregations to share some of the things they were thankful for. It is our prayer that it will encourage all of us to give thanks to God.
