Ash Wednesday Prayer

Forgive those things we have done
which have caused you sadness,
and those things we should have done
that would have brought you joy.
In both we have failed
and you.
Bring us back to that place
where our journey began,
when we said that we would follow
the way that you first trod.
Lead us to the Cross
and meet
us there.

One Response to “Ash Wednesday Prayer”

  1. Claire,

    I am writing to seek your permission to share “We Ask, Hunger,Yearn Pray” In the the Newsletter at Union Presbyterian Church in St. Peter, MN. I was moved by it when I read it in Weavings and wold like to share it with our congregation.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks so much,
    Jan Prehn
