And what have you done with your fast? As you think about the last few weeks, the Prophet Isaiah reminds us of what God has been looking for this whole time.
Is. 58:6 “The kind of fasting I want is this: remove the chains of oppression and the yoke of injustice, and let the oppressed go free.
58:7 Share your food with the hungry and open your homes to the homeless poor. Give clothes to those who have nothing to wear, and do not refuse to help your own relatives.
58:8 “Then my favour will shine on you like the morning sun, and your wounds will be quickly healed. I will always be with you to save you; my presence will protect you on every side.
58:9 When you pray, I will answer you. When you call to me, I will respond.
Pray for strength as your prayers reflect the thanksgiving of life, but as you do do not forget your life in the midst of those who are hungry, naked, homeless, sick, or oppressed.
