A prayer for Ash Wednesday
March 2, 2022
Today Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and the journey toward Holy Week. This is a holy day too, when many of us will hear again ancient words of the fragility of life and of grace – that God has formed us ‘from the dust of the earth’, that we are mortal, and yet in God’s hands we remain. May this new season of the church be a time of deep reflection and meaning pointing us to new life.
Assembly National Consultant Rev Lindsay Cullen has offered this prayer, as today we also join with others across the world in praying for peace in Ukraine and other parts of our beloved yet hurting and ashen world.
