Prayer for Dreams

Lord of Vision through night and day:
Our nights and days are filled with nightmares
where hatred divides and differences are highlighted to exclude.
Give us dreams.
Fill our minds with insights into a bright future.
Fill our hearts with love to reach out to one another.
Fill our souls with your promises and your presence.
All because of Christ who died, Christ who is risen, and Christ who comes again.  Amen.

Begin the Fast

In the old days people would go for days, weeks, without eating.

Jesus in the desert.  Peter on the rooftop.  Paul in prison.

                   There is a part of us that knows why:

In giving up we gain,

                   In letting go we receive,

                   In the practice we find the presence.

                   So during these 40 days, Lord, ignite our spirits.

Limit our busy and our stuffy

                                that we find you in the fasting.
