About Ash Wednesday and Lent
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline.
Ash Wednesday emphasizes two themes: our sinfulness before God and our human mortality. The service focuses on both themes, helping us to realize that both have been triumphed through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Our Father who art in Heaven. Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
Let’s all pray together. The power of prayer is amazing!
I pray that all my family and friends are kept safe in these very scary times. Also watch over health care workers as they work tirelessly to protect their patients. AMEN
