A Prayer for Ash Wednesday

February 10, 2016

O God,

maker of every thing and judge of all that you have made,

from the dust of the earth you have formed us

and from the dust of death you would raise us up.

By the redemptive power of the cross,

create in us clean hearts

and put within us a new spirit,

that we may repent of our sins

and lead lives worthy of your calling;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

— from The United Methodist Hymnal, current edition, page 353
