Ash Wednesday Prayer

Ash Wednesday Prayer

Father in Heaven,
the light of your truth bestows sight
to the darkness of sinful eyes.
May this season of repentance
bring us the blessing of Your forgiveness
and the gift of Your light.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.



Remember you are dust and it is to dust you shall be returned.

This Lent work metanoia on me
by turning: pride into humility,
anxiety into acceptance,
frugality into generosity,
criticism into praise,
...coldness into warmth,
neglect into concern,
indifference into love,
grudges into joy,
ingratitude into thankfulness,
prayerlessness into devotion
at the foot of the cross.
Lord take the clay,
Begin the shaping in preparation
for the wedding feast of the Lamb.
