OneWalk: Ash Wednesday, Bible Verse, Reading and Prayer

Today’s verse

17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’

“Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat food from it
all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return.”

Today’s Prayer

Gracious God, Genesis 3 is not good news. It proclaims the bad news of how sin has warped our lives. It reveals that we will experience the impact of sin in our work, as well as in our ultimate mortality. Though we’d rather not deal with this bad news, Lord, we need to hear it because it’s true.

And because it prepares us for the good news that is coming. When we recognize how lost we are, we yearn to be found. When we feel the pain of our mortality, we long for immortality. When our work is painful, we are reminded that we need your grace to touch all of life.

As we begin this season of Lent, may our hearts be open to you. Prepare us, Lord, for a fresh experience of your grace. May your life be alive within us! Amen.
