I know there's a section for prayers, but this one particularly speaks to us about fasting and we've been adding it into our daily prayers. Just wanted to share it.

A Prayer for Guidance

Gracious, merciful Lord,

Be my guide always.

Draw me closer to You.

Help me to suffer as I ought.

You are the Great Comforter.

Be with me, Lord, as I pray and fast.

Teach me to pray and fast so I may join
You and all the saints.

Teach me to offer up my suffering to help
those most in need.

Guide me to be ever mindful of You and
the greater purpose You have in mind
for me.

Amen.

I like this prayer too. I find that I sort of ask and pray some of these thoughts, but this prayer says it much more beautifully and far more efficiently than my clumsy attempts. Thanks for sharing it. Andy

You're welcome Andy! I'll pass that along to my husband. He found this on a prayer card in the
vestibule of a church. It's one of our favorite prayers. :D
