"Isn’t this the fast I choose: To break the chains of wickedness, to untie the ropes of the yoke, to set the oppressed free, and to tear off every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, to bring the poor and homeless into your house, to clothe the naked when you see him, and not to ignore your own flesh and blood? Then your light will appear like the dawn, and your recovery will come quickly. Your righteousness will go before you, and the Lord’s glory will be your rear guard." Isaiah 58:6-7
What better way to set the course for this new year than through a time of prayer and fasting! We understand that when we dedicate the beginning of our year to the Lord, we set ourselves up for success in every area of our lives.
