Appear not fasting to others relief

Gospel of Matthew Ch 6 v- 16 thru 18

16 “When you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites. They neglect their appearance, so that they may appear to others to be fasting. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. 17 But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 so that you may not appear to others to be fasting, except to your Father who is hidden. And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.

A subject spoken about weekly in our home. There are so many different ways to fast learning about giving up things for God normally asking for healing of someone ill or in a situation that needs absolute prayer. You know the type of prayer that is constant calling on the Name of Jesus in an unceasing stream of petitions seeking miracles while understanding His Will by living for Him and Him alone. To understand His Will we accept everything He gives to us as well as accepting whatever He keeps from us as His Divine Providence we celebrate by consuming His Body and Blood as Directed by Him to live in union with Him daily. We often fast from televisions and cell phones sharing not with others how we fast in food or other ways for we follow the directives of Christ Himself not revealing to others our fast but always creating the face of Jesus opening our arms no matter the call of Charity’s need. Fasting is something that should be unseen but central for a constant relationship with Jesus to know Salvation. If I was to honor someone with the hidden fasting award it would surely be my wife Toni. The TV gets a sign and the cell phone doesn’t beep your in a fast that God must complete. Amen.

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others dealing with the war in Ukraine. In the Holy Spirit we pray our brothers in Kairos especially a prayer for our men in blue. We pray for our sister-in-law Carmen. She is the grandmother of Brittany who we speak healing prayers for daily who overcame brain cancer. We pray for Holy Mother Church. We pray for our Holy Mother in the name of Louie. Daily prayers for our neighbor Thelma. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

I am a poet obedient to Christ,

**Appear not fasting to others relief**

Gloomy look not as you fast

Hypocrites do the same

Appearance neglect not in contrast

Others appear with obvious blame

Rewards theirs received

Fasting with grief

You I say amen conceived

Appear not fasting to others relief

Hidden is a Father also who sees

What a Father repaid is absolute belief

Seeing what is hidden without any fees

Others appear hidden like a leaf
