5 Prayers for Palm Sunday and Holy Week

Easter and Holy Week have been quite different during the last two years amid the outbreak of COVID-19. We celebrated these holy occasions in our houses and away from church families and sanctuaries. However, the time has come to focus on the real significance of the most Holy Week and the traditions surrounding it.

Palm Sunday celebrates the grand entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. The day reminds us of the time when people handed over palm branches for honoring Christ as king. Jesus showed his humility by riding over these branches into the Holy City on a donkey instead of a magnificent stallion. Happy Palm Sunday is also referred to as Passion Sunday. The day starts Holy Week and celebrates Christ’s glory, and yet by Friday, he was crucified. Let us make prayers an integral part of Palm Sunday 2022 and Holy Week through these beautiful prayers:

1. Prayer to Praise Lord 

Dear Lord of Israel,
We praise you for your ultimate sacrifice for us. You arrived to set people free and help your believers. You showed mercy as was promised to all our ancestors and we are grateful for that. We are thankful for your tender mercy, the dawn of salvation. You give light to people that are in death’s shadow and sit in darkness. You guide us to attain peace, hope, and success, and we thank you for all that. Amen.

2. Prayer to Rejoice Lord’s Entry 

Dear Lord,
We are delighted with your arrival into our lives and the world! We join the crowds to sing your glory and praises. At the same time, although our hearts are close to true worship, our minds do not dwell upon real understanding. We fail to acknowledge and appreciate your humility. Sometimes, we are not motivated by your glory. It was our sins that took your life though you are our creator. Our betrayal provokes us to war, although you have always desired peace. Please help us to understand your glory and show faith in you from hereon. Amen.

3. Prayer for Radiance 

Dear God,
Show mercy on us and forgive us for our acts. Impart a new song of celebration and joy. O merciful Lord, we are entering the Holy Week, and our hearts are set on Jerusalem. We also remember the resurrection, death, and life of Jesus. Please guide us with the gift of faith so that we praise Him not only verbally, but also follow Jesus in the way of the holy cross. Amen.

4. Prayer to Confess

O God, we remember this day when you arrived at this rebellious city, which rejected you later. We wish to confess that we are as rebellious as Jerusalem, and our belief is sometimes more superficial. Our hearts need cleansing so show mercy on us, the Savior of our lives. Help us to trust you and pardon what is sinful, to sing your praises, to treat you as our own. Amen.

5. Prayer to Thank God for Sending His Son

Eternal and almighty Lord,
We thank you for your tender love towards us. You sent your only Son who is our Savior Christ. He made the greatest possible sacrifice for us. Jesus had to die on the cross to save us from our sins. We pray to follow the example of His humility and patience. Your Son, Christ reigns and lives with you forever. Amen.

Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Church of the Holy Sepulchre

The church situated in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem is also known as the Church of the Resurrection and the Church of the Anastasis. The church houses the last four holy sites where Christ was crucified at the Calvary or Golgotha; the sites are known as the Stations of the Cross and situated along the Via Dolorosa. The church was rediscovered in the 4th century by the mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine, St. Helena. She found Christ’s tomb and the True Cross. Two churches were constructed at the site; one was above the tomb while the other was built around the hill of Golgotha. In the 11th century and the early 1800s, major work was undertaken to rebuild the site. The cavernous structure contains elements of the medieval, Byzantine, and Crusader forms of architecture. Visitors can see the many shrines, altars, and outstanding pieces of artwork. One can visit the tombs dating back to the first century, the Prison of Christ, the Chapel of the Finding of the Cross, the Rock of Calvary, the Stone of the Unction, and the Chapel of Agony of the Virgin where Christ’s body was taken down from the Cross.

Garden Tomb

The Garden Tomb

This site situated near the Damascus Gate outside the walled city of Jerusalem holds the utmost significance as it is widely believed to be the place for Christ’s burial and Resurrection. Although speculation is rife about the precise date of the tomb’s discovery, popular view suggests that it was found in 1867. The place was identified as the site of Christ’s burial as it contained a burial site dating back to the first century. There is a craggy escarpment nearby resembling a skull; it is believed that Christ was crucified here. It is popularly known as the Hill of the Skull or Golgotha.

Church of All Nations


Church of All Nations

This church, also known as the Basilica of Agony, faces the walls of the Old City and stands atop the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. It is the site where Christ prayed the night before his Crucifixion. The church stands on the remnants of a basilica built in the 4th century and a Crusader chapel constructed in the 12th century. Twelve different nations contributed to the construction of the neo-classical church; hence it earned the name of the Church of All Nations. The astounding mosaic façade supported by Corinthian columns above the main entrance depicts Christ as a conduit between the Lord and mankind. The walls of the church are adorned with mosaics depicting Biblical scenes that had taken place at the Garden of Gethsemane. Beneath the altar is the Rock of Agony where Christ sat down and prayed; it is encircled by a crown of thorns made of wrought iron.

Abbey of the Dormition

The Abbey of the Dormition

The Dormition Abbey is located on Mount Zion outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem near the Zion Gate. In 1898, a piece of land was given to the German Kaiser Wilhelm II to commemorate his visit to Jerusalem by the Ottoman ruler. The German-Catholic Church is a magnificent neo-Romanesque structure that incorporates the architectural style of the ancient cathedrals of Europe; the red and white bricks are reminiscent of the Mameluke architecture. The abbey was dedicated in 1910. The site holds significance as it is the place where the Blessed Virgin Mary fell into an eternal slumber. Hence the term Dormition denoting sleep is associated with the place. The mosaics express the link between the world and divinity, the four evangelists and the Biblical prophets.

St. Peter’s Church

St. Peter’s Church

This Franciscan church is a distinctive building with its elegant brick façade and lofty bell tower in Old Jaffa. The 13th-century citadel bears elements of the New Spanish baroque architecture and its interiors depict various episodes of St. Peter’s life, including the transfiguration of Christ on Mount Tabor and the washing of his feet at the Last Supper. Although a majority of the churches face East, the St. Peter’s Church faces towards the sea in the West as it is where the saint had seen his first vision to spread the word of the Lord and evangelize the Gentiles. The carved pulpit resembles the shape of a tree.
