    Life Verse:  Isaiah 58: 6-12 (NASV)

    “Is this not the fast that I choose:
    To release the bonds of wickedness,
    To undo the ropes of the yoke,
    And to let the oppressed go free,
    And break every yoke?
    7 Is it not to break your bread [c]with the hungry
    And bring the homeless poor into the house;
    When you see the naked, to cover him;
    And not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
    8 Then your light will break out like the dawn,
    And your recovery will spring up quickly;
    And your righteousness will go before you;
    The glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
    9 Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
    You will cry for help, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’
    If you remove the yoke from your midst,
    The [d]pointing of the finger and speaking wickedness,
    10 And if you offer yourself to the hungry
    And satisfy the [e]need of the afflicted,
    Then your light will rise in darkness,
    And your gloom will become like midday.
    11 And the Lord will continually guide you,
    And satisfy your [f]desire in scorched places,
    And give strength to your bones;
    And you will be like a watered garden,
    And like a spring of water whose waters do not [g]fail.
    12 Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins;
    You will raise up the age-old foundations;
    And you will be called the repairer of the breach,
    The restorer of the [h]streets in which to dwell.”
