Ash Wednesday Prayer


Here’s a prayer of petition for Ash Wednesday from the Christian Aid website.

Prayer for Ash Wednesday

O God, advocate of all who are oppressed, 
You shatter our illusions of righteousness 
and unmask our divided hearts, 
in order that we might be filled
with longing for justice and generosity 
and so be made whole. 

And as justice and generosity 
are true marks of a heart turning towards you, 
let our actions as well as our intentions 
bear witness for the longing of our hearts.
