A Lenten Prayer

Heavenly Father, this Lent we ask your grace.

To fast from judging others and

feast on what makes them special,

To fast from unkind words and feast on kindness,

To fast from jealousy

and feast on offering compliments,

To fast from getting angry

and feast on being patient,

To fast from worry and feast on trusting God,

To fast from complaining and feast on gratitude,

To fast from negative thoughts

and feast on positive ones,

To fast from nastiness and feast on friendliness,

To fast from greed and feast on giving,

To fast from envy and feast on congratulating,

To fast from conflict and feast on understanding,

To fast from selfishness

and feast on helping others,

To fast from doubt and feast on faith,

To fast from holding grudges

and feast on forgiveness,

To fast from gloominess and feast on happiness,

To fast from discouragement and feast on hope.
