PRAYER ON ASH WEDNESDAY & LENT

O Jesus, in honour of the forty days

you spent in the desert praying and fasting,

we begin this season of Lent.

During this holy time of sacrifice, prayer, and good works may we prepare our hearts, our souls, our minds and bodies for the greatest feast in the Church,the feast of Your Resurrection.

May we follow in Your footsteps

as we journey with You to Jerusalem.

At each Mass that we participate in during this Lent, may we be reminded of the Last Supper

and Your gift of Eucharist.

May we continue with You to Calvary,

accepting the crosses that are given to us each day.

May we stay with Your Mother Mary

as she stands by Your Cross.

We ask You to forgive us our sins

and thank You for the sacrifice You have made for us.

Grant us, O God, the perseverance

to strive each day of this holy season of Lent

to become better Christians.

May our preparation for Easter

make us one with the Risen Christ on Easter

and every day of our lives. Amen.
