Ash Wednesday Prayer Service

Ash Wednesday Prayer Service

The Ash Wednesday Prayer Service was prepared by Mercy International’s Heritage and Spirituality Team. We encourage any and all to utilize this prayer service with your community, schools/students, work colleagues, friends, and families. We hope this prayer service helps you enter the Lenten season intentionally.

Materials Needed: Participants need a candle and lighter/matches. Groups may want to prepare a central prayer space to add their candles to.

Preparing a Prayer Space: Prayer spaces may include fabrics or table cloths, Mercy crosses, candles, items from nature like flowers or seashells, and items significant to your community like a school emblem or community covenant.
