Prayer in this Lenten time

Prayer

We stand before you, God,
… humbly aware that we are
but creatures of dust
on a short sojourn here, yet
ever mindful that you
took on this same dusty flesh,
walked the road to Calvary in our place.
Lord, we remember.

Lord, you are indeed
full of compassion and great mercy.
Your love never fails to meet us
where we are.
And here we are, Lord,
ever mindful of our failures,
our brokenness, our unworthiness.
Lord, we confess.

Lord, now by these ashes
placed upon our foreheads,
we open our hearts again
to this Lenten journey.
Ever mindful of your grace,
we walk with you
from death to life anew.
Lord, we believe.
