Ash Wednesday — #40WordPrayer on Community
Is not this the fast that I choose:
to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke,
to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?
— Isaiah 58:6
When I live believing
my life is the only life that matters,
God, remind me that
the faces of others reflect your face,
the struggles of others bring your liberation to my life,
and the kindness of others speaks your grace into my soul.
So as we begin this journey, let’s think about it as a collective of individuals on a journey, each discerning God’s hopes and intentions for our personal lives while seeking freedom and justice for the larger community. Let’s make this a time where it is about me—but it is also about you, about us, and ultimately all about God.
