Fasting Prayer

Fasting has one thousand and one benefits ranging from physical to spiritual. I have created this small prayer in the hope of giving you willpower while you are in a fast:

Oh Lord,

Help me fast from this day until the end of my fast,
May my efforts be used by you,
May my body be detoxified,
May my soul be purified,
May the money and food that I save daily be used to feed the poor,
May your grace and love fill me every day,

Thy will be done.
