Ash Wednesday Prayer

Heavenly Father, Blessed One, have mercy on me as I confess my sins to You. In my sin, I have fallen short of Your glory and without Your mercy and grace, I would not be here today. Father, I repent now. Lord, as I embark onto this Lenten season, be close to me. Help me Lord, through Your Holy Spirit, to believe in what is right and to be truly contrite for my sins. Help me, by your Spirit, to have the strength to defeat the enemy. Wash away my iniquity and cleanse me of my sin. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me (PS 51:2, 10). Amen
