Father, I pray that I will remember the fast you have chosen: /To loose the bonds of wickedness,  /To undo the heavy burdens, /To let the oppressed go free, /And that I break every yoke. /I pray that I will share my bread with the hungry, /That I will bring to my house the poor that are cast out, /And when I see the naked, that I will cover him. /Then my light will break forth like the morning, /My own healing shall spring forth speedily… /I will call and You will answer, /I shall cry, and You will say to him, “I am here.” Isaiah 58:6-10

Father, let my love for fellow believers continue and be a fixed practice with me. Never let this love fail within me. Do not let me forget or neglect or refuse to extend hospitality to strangers. Rather, prompt me to be friendly, cordial and gracious, sharing the comforts of my home and doing my part generously, because I never know when I might be entertain an angels without knowing. Hebrews 13:1-2 AMP
