A Lenten Prayer: How to Fast

Fast from judging others; feast on the Christ dwelling 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 words that pollute; feast on phrases that purify. 
Fast from discontent; feast on gratitude. 
Fast from anger; feast on patience. 
Fast from pessimism; feast on optimism. 
Fast from worry; feast on trust. 
Fast from complaining; feast on appreciation. 
Fast from negatives; feast on affirmatives. 
Fast from unrelenting pressures; feast on unceasing prayer. 
Fast from hostility; feast on nonviolence. 
Fast from bitterness; feast on forgiveness. 
Fast from self-concern; feast on compassion for others. 
Fast from personal anxiety; feast on eternal truth. 
Fast from discouragement; feast on hope. 
Fast from facts that depress; feast on truths that uplift. 
Fast from lethargy; feast on enthusiasm. 
Fast from suspicion; feast on truth. 
Fast from thoughts that weaken; feast on promises that inspire. 
Fast from idle gossip; feast on purposeful silence.

Gentle God, during this season of fasting and feasting, gift us with Your 
Presence, so we can be gift to others in carrying out your work. Amen.
