Mark 11:9 Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Dear Jesus, you are the ultimate King, knowing all things, powerful and mighty, humble and loving, victorious in battle against sin, death, and the devil. You desire to be King of my heart and King of my life so that I hear your voice and follow you, that I listen to your promises and trust in them. I am ashamed to admit that as much as I understand and want you to be King of my heart and life, too often you’re not. Too often I listen to my own voice and reason. Forgive me. And as you assure me that you have forgiven me, you again remind me why I have every reason to keep you as the King of my heart and life, for you know me; you love me; you care for me; you will always do what’s best for me. So Lord Jesus, with your help when I’m tempted to be my own king, help me keep you as King of my heart and my life. Amen.
