Is not this the kind of fasting You have chosen, O Lord God: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share our food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when we see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from our own flesh and blood? Then Light will break forth like the dawn, and healing will quickly appear; then righteousness will go before us, and Your glory will be our rear guard. Then we will call upon You, LORD and You will answer… we will cry for help, and You will say: “Here am I.” In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Isaiah 58:6-9 (NIV)
