THE GOSPEL

John 12:20-33

‘Father save me from this hour.’

Jesus said,
 “I am troubled. 
 Yet what should I say?”

Jesus,

you are 
troubled too
by unclean water,
by friends being trafficked.
By children dying from a deluge of
drugs and
guns.

What can we say?

 Jesus!

We call 
 upon your name.
We ask your presence.
Help us to rise and die in you.
And become abundant fields of wheat
for you.


THE FIRST READING

Jeremiah 31:31-34

I will be their God and they will be my people.

 God writes on hearts,
not on stone
 tablets.

And in return we beg
God to open us
 and forgive us
and forget
 our sins.

God, we
want to receive,
and cherish and forgive,

just as you
do.

Let it be.

THE SECOND READING

Hebrews 5:7-9

He offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears.

Jesus
you knew fear.

You called for help
with loud
cries.

Your tears knew
our worst
pain.

 Yet you pick us up,
you hold us,
and you
weep
with
  us. 

We give great
thanks to
you,

savior,

friend.
