A Lenten Prayer – by Rosalie Sugrue

A Lenten Prayer

Dear God our hope is to:

Fast from unkind thoughts;  May we instead feast on love;
Fast from sadness;  May we feast on joy;
Fast from anger;  May we feast on peace;
Fast from pessimism;  May we feast on patience;
Fast from discouragement;  May we feast on faithfulness;
Fast from bitterness;  May we feast on kindness;
Fast from negativity;  May we feast on gentleness;
Fast from worry;  May we feast on goodness;
Fast from indulgence;  May we feast on self-control.

Gracious God,
during this season of fasting make us keenly aware of the feasting you offer.
Gift us with your presence, so we can be gift to others in carrying out your work.

Amen.
