Whenever you fast


Isaiah 58:1-9; Matthew 6:16-18

Prayer for the day:
Be with us, Holy Wisdom, as we seek to learn the patterns of living as disciples of Jesus. Take from us the desire to boast of the ways we seek to be closer to you.

Question for reflection:
Are you fasting from a particular thing this Lent? Why/why not? What questions does this scripture ask of you and your fast?


~ Becky Ullom-Naugle, Director for Youth and Young Adult Ministries
