A Prayer for Ash Wednesday

PRAY:  Jesus, our lives are complicated and stressful.  We don't like to quiet ourselves for a time to face our temptations and shortcomings.  By the power of Your Holy Spirit, we venture into the wilderness for the next 40 days with You.  Grant us revelation there.  Help us to be better parents to these special kids.  Equip us during this time to face the crosses that we must encounter as part of our calling.  And help us to remember, those crosses don't have the final say in our lives -- Your resurrection power and glory will restore us, our children, all that we love to an eternal joy that is far beyond the trials of this world.
