Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block

On the Second Day of Fast1
I read a prayer
revealed for the nineteen-day Fast,
and contemplate letting go.
In its essence fasting
is letting go of the desires of the flesh--
such as food and drink--
and holding onto spiritual qualities--
such as faith in God
I am learning to let go
of the prejudices
that come between me
and the Glorious Lord.
