Prayer for Lent
Ever wonder why churches have Ash Wednesday? Although at Willenhall Free Church we don't celebrate Ash Wednesday or practice Lent many churches do. During worship services on Ash Wednesday, pastors, and vicars in many churches dip a finger in ashes (often made by burning branches from the previous Palm Sunday) and make a cross on parishioners’ foreheads.
Why ashes? Traditionally, they’re a sign of mourning, humiliation and penitence. Ashes also represent the frailty and temporary nature of human life (“You are dust, and to dust you shall return,” Genesis 3:19). Christians are pained because our sins led to Jesus’ death. With repentant hearts, we begin the season of Lent, knowing that it leads to Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday.
For Ash Wednesday and throughout the 40 days of Lent, ponder this prayer : “O God, you know how fragile is our human nature, wounded as it is by sin. Help your people to enter upon the Lenten journey strengthened by the power of your word, so that we may be victorious over the seduction of the Evil One and reach the paschal feast in the joy of the Holy Spirit.”
