Imposition of Ashes

A PRAYER FOR LENT Father God, help us never forget that Jesus knew his time was coming. The rest of us pass blissfully through life knowing we will die “someday.” Jesus knew the time was near, yet he continued to show love and faith. He continually put himself on the line, when most of us would have run away in fear. God, during this time of Lent, give us just one small taste of what it must have been like for him. Help us appreciate the great love your Son had for us — a love that kept him living for others, even when he knew he was going to die. Amen
