Fasting and the Our Father

“Father, hallowed be your name,
your Kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread
and forgive us our sins
for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us,
and do not subject us to the final test.”

Fasting give us the grace to keep holy the Lord’s name. Fasting helps us to trust that God will provide for us every day. Fasting gives us the extra graces to forgive others’ sins so that Our Father can forgive our own sins. Fasting helps us to resist temptation. Fasting helps to deliver us from the evil one.

Fasting is not just doing without food. That is dieting. When we add fasting to our prayer routine, it lights a fire under and strengthens our prayers. Fasting invites the Holy Spirit into our hearts. Fasting and praying for others makes us Good Samaritans to our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

As we get closer to the 100th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, let us pray and fast for the conversion of all sinners, especially those who are trapped by sin, all the community prayer intentions and for the Holy Souls in Purgatory.

Holy Mary, pray for us! Holy Spirit, teach us to pray!
