Day 27, Lent

A friend shared this prayer with me.  I love how it re-frames the idea of fasting and invites us to feast on things that God desires.  I hope that as you are fasting this Lent, you are also feasting on God's grace.

A Prayer from Lent from The Anglican Digest  
 Lord, help me to            
Fast from judging others and feast on Christ dwelling in them;            
Fast from fear of illness and feast on the healing power of God;            
Fast from words that pollute and feast on the speech that purifies;            
Fast from discontent and feast on gratitude;            
Fast from anger and feast on patience;            
Fast from pessimism and feast on optimism;            
Fast from negatives and feast on alternatives;            
Fast from bitterness and feast on forgiveness;            
Fast from self-concern and feast on compassion;            
Fast from suspicion and feast on truth;            
Fast from gossip and feast on purposeful silence;            
Fast from problems that overwhelm and feast on prayer that sustains;            
Fast from worry and feast on faith.
Make these words more than words and give me the Spirit of Jesus.
Amen.

Peace, friends,
Laurie
