Fasting and Feasting For Lent, For Always

Lent is more than a time of fasting, It can also be a joyous season of feasting

Prayers For Lent and For Always

Fast from judging others, Feast of Christ dwelling within them Fast from the emphasis on differences, Feast on the unity of all Fast from apparent darkness; Feast on the reality of light Fast from thoughts of illness, Feast on God’s healing power 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 Divine Providence 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 non-resistance 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 acts that tear down, Feast on acts that build up Fast from facts that depress, Feast on promises that inspire Fast from shadows of sorrow, Feast on the sunlight of peace Fast from idle gossip, Feast on purposeful silence Fast from problems that overwhelm, Feast on prayer support

—William Arthur Ward (American author, teacher and pastor, 1921-1994.)

Live that you need not be afraid of tomorrow or ashamed of yesterday

May God’s Angels Be With You Always
