Verse to Pray for Our Home
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?
7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.”
God, we are desperate for You. You sent Jesus to be all these things to us: to loose the chains of injustice, to untie the cords of the yoke, to free the oppressed, to break every yoke, to share food with the hungry, to provide shelter for the poor, to clothe the naked. God, may we go and do the same. May we be Jesus to these You love.

I would LOVE to hear from you in the comments! How are you liking the book? What struck you the most??
When we do those things listed in Isaiah 58, it won’t be easy.
“Genuine spirituality is not cozy and seldom makes you comfortable. It challenges, disturbs, unsettles, and leaves you feeling like someone is at the center of your existence on a major remodeling mission.” Radical Hospitality, p. 73.
Getting out of our comfort zones is never easy. But it’s always good for us, yes?
