A prayer for those who need to eat on a Jewish fast day.

(Find Yom Kippur prayers here.)

Dear God,

As I prepare to eat on this fast day,

please help me feel close to You.

As I nourish my body, heart, mind, and soul,

may comfort envelop me.

May I connect to the meaning of the day

in ways that support me.

May I find a community who will hold me

where I am.

For who I am.

May the words of my heart reach Your loving

and compassionate presence.

May I find peace and holiness through eating,

through connecting, through You.
