Hosanna... O God, save us.

Matthew 21:9
The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting,
“Hosanna to the Son of David!
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

With voices raised high,
We cry, "Hosanna!  O God, save us!"
Save us from thinking thoughts too grand about ourselves
and small thoughts about you.
Save us from violence.
Save us from poor choices. 
Save us from the hell
we live in everyday:
abuse, loneliness, addiction, fear, insecurity, rage...

Today we join the ancient prayer,
O God, save us.
