A Lenten Prayer


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 complaining;
feast on affirmation. Fast from bitterness; feast on forgiveness.
Fast from self-concern; feast on compassion for others.
Fast from discouragement; feast on hope.
Fast from boredom; feast on enthusiasm.
Fast from suspicion; feast on truth.
Fast from thoughts that weaken; feast on promises that inspire.
Fast from shadows of sorrow; feast on the sunlight of serenity.

Amen.
Peace of Christ to ALL
