Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
O mighty God, as we fast, humble ourselves, and seek Your face, we beseech You to set free the mentally, emotionally, and physically oppressed both in and out of the Church . . . and that You break every yoke of spiritual bondage under which men and women and children are now living. Set free the people You love, in Jesus’ name.
