  1. Jennifer,
    This is absolutely beautiful….your words captured the sentiments of my heart as well….hard to say much more…. thanks be to my Healer, my Redeemer, my Restorer, my Rewarder, my Provider, my Savior, my First Love, My All in all…. My Everything….Amen!
    Blessings and praise be to the One who sacrificed it all for me/you,
    Bev xx

  2. This is The One who holds my heart, dries my tears, knows my thoughts (even the ones I’m ashamed to admit to). He is the One True and Living God, The Creator, My Saviour and Redeemer. He is Jesus, the ONLY Son of God, born of a virgin, walked as a man, died on a cross and risen again! He’s my Daddy, my Husband, my Lord.

  3. This is the most touching and beautiful Palm Sunday devotional that I have ever read. Thank you for blessing my heart in these moments as I sit before heading off to our Palm Sunday celebration. What a Savior and friend we have!

  4. Jennifer,

    I would call Him Savior, Healer, Giver of Miracles, My Rock, My Redeemer-let my loud Hosannas ring out! He allowed me to witness a miracle last year. That brought me closer to Him than ever before! About 9 years ago my dad got re baptized. He had been reading New Testament over. He told my pastor that he had broken those ten commandments many times and needed to repent. Praise God for that redemptive time! Now my dad is in Heaven with mom praising God! This is a special Palm Sunday for me!

    Blessings 🙂

  5. Jennifer, you words here so perfectly mirrored our pastor’s sermon today. May Jesus always find us with palms raised high to the King of Kings!

  6. Thank you so much for speaking up for Jesus. You inspire us all to shout his name and do his work!

  7. This made me cry thank you so much for writing this!!! It’s beautifully written and said. Our precious jesus deserves it all!!

  8. Jennifer, what a wonderful prayer describing the Jesus, the Son of God. He is my savior and I am so thankful for you, your posts and for Jesus and that He does for me, my family and others. I don’t I could describe who He is better than you did. He is all the things in your prayer to me. Thank you for sharing and God Bless you.

  9. This is so beautiful. It struck me how you said that while the crowds cheered for him, His face was set toward the cross. If we are to follow after Him, then even when others cheer for us, we need to have our face turned toward His cross as well, being willing to suffer for His glory, remembering we are His redeemed children by His grace, and boasting in nothing but the cross of our Savior.

  10. Amen to this powerful prayer, Jennifer! He is exalted and at the name of JESUS every knee will bow and every tongue confess He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings…my Redeemer/Rescuer be praised!
