Our Blessings to you today!

May God bless you and keep you.
May God make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you.
May God lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.

May He also bless you with abundant provision, giving you everything you need and more. And may this overflow of abundance empower you to share with those around you. In Jesus Name, Amen!
- quoted from: Numbers 6:24-26 & 2 Corinthians 9:8

In the name of The Father, and of The Son and of The Holy Spirit. Amen.

Heavenly Father,

As I begin this time of fasting, I pray that you will fill me with Your grace, and grant me strength and resolution to endure the hunger and discomforts that I may experience during this fast.

Keep me strong and alert, Lord. Deliver me from all unwanted thoughts and distractions that would jeopardize my fast.
Protect me from temptation and from the Evil One. May this fast lead me to spiritual growth, renewal, and healing.

Father, reassure me of Your presence and support throughout this difficult and challenging times of this fast. May I encounter moments of profound spiritual insight and surrender.

Help me not to focus on what is being taken away, but as an opportunity for spiritual discipline and growth. With You leading me, Holy Spirit, I am ready.

My God, I offer up this fast to You and to Your glory. May Your mercy be always upon me, a sinner.
In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.


Closing Prayer:

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And you shall renew the face of the earth.

O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, through Christ Our Lord, Amen.


Oh gracious God - Source of all love and mercy, wisdom and light.

With all my heart, I thank You, Lord, for leading and guiding me. I thank you for not giving me a spirit of fear but of power, love, sound mind, and self-control.

Today, I commit to tuning into Your guidance, O Lord.

Please don't let me rely solely on my own understanding and strength. Even the most exceptional individuals among your creations faltered due to the devil's deceit. Help me to remain vigilant against the schemes of the enemy and to continually seek your wisdom and guidance.

Grant me the grace to remain humble, the ability to discern Your voice, to intimately know You, and to faithfully follow You every day of my life, trusting in Your divine wisdom and grace, and knowing that with Your guidance, I can navigate life's challenges and remain steadfast in faith.

In Jesus' Name, we pray, Amen.
