Fasting for Justice

Today focus on the deep hunger you have for God.
Allow this hunger to pray within you.
Now, become aware of that hunger for God as it is experienced by your family, friends, the poor, the homeless, the alienated, the destitute, the lonely, the refugee, the undocumented, and allow this hunger to pray within you.
As you do so, relax in silence and allow God to share with you how this hunger feels and what this hunger means.

These thoughts come from a 1993 book of Bridget Mary Meehan; It is called Your Prayerful Journal for Lent. It is an old book, but the content is still relevant today for each of us.
