A Prayer for Lent

Lent is a Time to Feast and Fast

Loving God, as we continue in the Holy Season of Lent, send us your Holy Spirit so we can….

Fast from judging others.
Feast on the Christ within them.
Fast from emphasis on differences.
Feast on the unity of all life.
Fast from apparent darkness.
Feast on the reality of light.
Fast from thoughts of illness.
Feast on the healing power of God.
Fast from discontent.
Feast on gratitude.
Fast from anger.
Feast on patience.
Fast from pessimism.
Feast on optimism.
Fast from worry.
Feast on God’s love for us.
