|Ash Wednesday, 2015.|
Most Holy God, we humbly come before You, seeking pardon and reconciliation from You and all whom we have wronged. Mark us as your own today, O God, we pray, that we may remember our covenant of devotion with You and each other.
We open our hearts to You: refine and purify us, that we may be filled with compassion and humility. We open our minds to You: refine and purify us, that we may be filled with your wisdom and truth. We open our souls to You: refine and purify us, that your Spirit may live within us always and guide us to new life and hope.
May we focus all our efforts on building your kingdom and living out your Word, Almighty Ruler. Hear the prayers, thanksgivings, and supplications of your people, Gracious One.
