Prayer for the Day
God, as we enter this season of exile and searching, reveal to us those places where our fasting is more about us than about your present, yet coming reign. Forgive us, we pray, of those times when our practices of faith are used as weapons of self-gratification. Embolden us in this season of Lent to ask which fast is ours to undertake so that we might live more fully into your vision for heaven on earth. Amen
Question for reflection:
What fast will you choose?
– Josh Brockway, Director Spiritual Life & Discipleship
