O lowly King

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                    

Behold, your king is coming to you,          humble, and mounted on a donkey,          on a colt, the foal of a donkey.                   —Matthew 21.5

                   

O lowly King, forgoing the war horse, regal on a donkey, King of Israel, Ruler of the Universe, lower than all of us— Hosanna! Save us! From our love of war horses, of being above others, of being right, being in control— save us!                    

O Prince of Humility, riding a burro, Sovereign beneath us, we honor you. Grant us your royal confidence in gentleness and grace. For adored, abandoned and belittled, over all things you reign; over all things you prevail.                    

O thou whose majesty is invisible, whose power and honor look foolish to the fearful, grant us love in the face of domination. Grant us the courage to say to all publics and powers, “I follow the King of the Universe, the little man full of mercy on the jackass.”

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
