Ash Wednesday, Collect (Redub)

Creator God
you love all that you have made.
Your gift of life is visible all around.
We ask that, by your Spirit,
you would comfort the afflicted,
and unsettle the comfortable.
Inspire us to be the change
we want to see in the world.
We ask this through Jesus Christ,
our friend and brother.

The Gunning Fog readability index suggests 5.06 years of formal education is required to understand this prayer on a first reading, the Common Worship prayer requires 36.5 years.

Here's the information on how this prayer is a redub.

The Ash Wednesday Collection of 5 prayers is here.

You can also look at the full Index of Prayers.

The project runs from Advent 2012 to Advent 2013.

If you want to use the prayers, an acknowledgement of myself as author and, if there's space, the link to my blog would be much appreciated.

I've adapted this for our adult Ash Wednesday theme, which is focusing on our community and particularly the launch of our Food Bank satellite. I'll link back here when I blog it.
Thank you.
