1st Week of Lent

Washed Clean
Compassionate God,
whose promise of love spans all generations,
rouse our hearts to hear your Word
and teach us to act according to your will.
Give us courage to turn away from temptation and strengthen our desire to follow you.
May we, who were washed clean of sin
and saved from death in the waters of Baptism, be renewed by your Holy Spirit during these forty days.
With the elect, guide our hearts to repentance so that, sustained by the Living Bread,
we may forever give witness to your love
and mercy.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Ash Wednesday

In this Time
O God of mercy,
who is slow to anger and rich
in kindness,
grant us, as we begin our Lenten journey,
contrite hearts that long
for reconciliation
and steadfast spirits that proclaim
your love.
In this acceptable time,
soften our calloused hearts,
watch over us, and keep us from all sin.
In this season of repentance,
help us turn toward the light of your
Son, Jesus Christ,
and away from selfish ambition.
In this period of renewal,
open our ears to hear your voice,
which calls us out of darkness,
so that with clean hearts we can forever
proclaim your praise.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
