Monday

Read Psalm 63:1-8

O God, you are my God,
   and I long for you.
My whole being desires you;
   like a dry, worn-out, and waterless land,
   my soul is thirsty for you.
2 Let me see you in the sanctuary;
   let me see how mighty and glorious you are.
3 Your constant love is better than life itself,
   and so I will praise you.
4 I will give you thanks as long as I live;
   I will raise my hands to you in prayer.
5 My soul will feast and be satisfied,
   and I will sing glad songs of praise to you.

6 As I lie in bed, I remember you;
   all night long I think of you,
7     because you have always been my help.
In the shadow of your wings I sing for joy.
8 I cling to you,
   and your hand keeps me safe.

Think

When we fast we direct our hunger or desire for the things we forgo towards God.  The Psalmist describes a deep and abiding hunger for God.

Pray

Lord help me to hunger for you in everything I do today.
