On the road to Jerusalem, Jesus,
you have spoken again and again
of your end and new beginning
to disciples who do not or will not understand.
Now you have entered the city
and you summon all who would follow you
to wait and watch with you.
Help us to enter into the intensity
of the week ahead of us
that we may truly wait and watch with you
as all is revealed, all is changed.
Before the revealing of love’s way,
and love’s glory
may our lives be changed and reborn also.
