There’s an old Jewish tale about pocket reminders:  
In one side pocket there’s “dust and ashes”.  
On the other side there’s “for me the world was created”   
The art of living a Jewish life is to balance them…..

I strongly recommend you check out Fr. Austin Fleming  at A Concord Pastor Comments 
"Beginning on Ash Wednesday, you'll find a daily Lenten post on prayer here. The posts will centre around the verse inscribed on the Cross above: Be still and know that I am God...

The aim of these posts will be to call each of us to prayer and to offer some seeds or prayer starters to help us quiet down and know that God is with us.

Jan Richardson Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross video below

Help us, awesome God, to be honest with ourselves and with you.  We want to change our wasteful, destructive ways.  We want to be rid of the evil that weighs us down, the guilt that crushes our spirits.  Have mercy on us as we remember and confess our sins in these moments of silent struggle.  Purge us of all the garbage from our past.  Wash us in the flowing streams of your forgiving love.  Create in us clean hearts, o God, and fill our lives with a new and right spirit.  Sustain our hearts day by day in renewed focus on your steadfast love.

From Lavon Bayler's, Gathered By Love:  Worsip Resources for Year C.  Cleveland:  United Church Press, 1994.
