Ash Wednesday

Posted: February 19, 2012 in Messages

Ash Wednesday will be the start of the Lent season.  It is important for us to keep our minds and hearts pure for our Lord.  Its a time we focus on God more on a personal level. 

Lets read the hymn below and start this Lent season with a clear mind.  I hope you will join me in these forty days of prayer.

“O Lord through out these forty days you prayed and kept the fast inspire repentance for our sin, and free us from our past. You strove with Satan and you won, your faithfulness endured; Lend us your nerve, Your skill and trust in God’s eternal word. Though parched and hungry, yet you prayed and fixed your mind above; so teach us to deny ourselves, Since we have known God’s love. Be with us through this season, Lord, And all our earthly days, That when the final Easter dawns, we join in heaven’s praise.”  LSB 418
