Hosanna to Ass Rider!
USE ME TODAY O LORD
My Lord and my God Jesus! You who made your triumphal entry into Jerusalem on the back of an ASS!
Deign to use me today as that ASS which carries you into the lime light of today’s modern world.
Deign O Lord to use me today as your watch dog to keep at bay wolves around and thieves on prowl on horizon for your flock.
Deign O Lord to use me today as a loud speaker that gives wings to your word and teachings for the benefit of those living around me.
Deign O Lord to use me today as a torch that illumines every dark spot in me and around me with your light and your light alone.
Deign O Lord to use me today as a mirror that reflects your inspiring face and divine personality to everyone who looks upon me.
Deign O Lord to turn me today into a flower bed that exudes your divine fragrance alone for every passer-by to breathe in.
Deign O Lord to turn me today into a tree producing fruits of your Holy Spirit to nourish those who come to sit and rest in my shade.
Lastly, my Lord Jesus, Deign to use me today as a BROOM, but a broom held in your holy hands, your powerful hands, your hands that shower forth graces and blessings alone, in order to sweep clean all the nooks and corners of my today’s ways according to your holy will. Amen.
