Day 12 – The kind of fast God wants


Isaiah 58

Call to Prayer

In Isaiah 58, God calls His people to a higher standard. He tells them their fasting and prayer has to be more than religious activity. It has to be rooted in transformation and a lifestyle that aligns with His heart.

Today, may you experience the kind of fasting and prayer that God chooses — the kind that removes the chains of injustice, breaks oppression and sets people free (Isaiah 58:6).

May you be satisfied and strengthened as you fast and pray. May you hear God inviting you into a life that puts others first. From morning to evening, may you be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
