Piper's Pen and Prose: Ash Wednesday



On this Ash Wednesday;  
Awe-Full- Frederick Ohler

Great and holy God awe and reverence fear and trembling do not come easily to us for we are not Old Testament Jews or Moses or mystics or sensitive enough. Forgive us for slouching into Your presence
with little expectation and less awe than we would eagerly give a visiting dignitary.  We need neither Jehovah nor a buddy – neither “the Great and Powerful Oz” nor “the man upstairs.” Help us to want what we need… You.


God and may the altar of our hearts tremble with delight at Your visitation amen.


In His Grace,
