Prayer and Fasting

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has asked that we join him in fasting at lunch Monday through Wednesday - July 20 - 22, and “praying for the people of Louisiana,” especially the sick, their caretakers, and the families of those who have died from COVID-19. “I’m going to call for three days of fasting and prayer for our state, for July 20 through the 22nd,” said Edwards, explaining that he received a request for the spiritual practice during a call with religious leaders from across the state. “So if you’re inclined, please join me and the First Lady and faith leaders of Louisiana, regardless of your denomination or your religion, and we would ask that you join us in prayerful reflection and fasting,” he said. I will post a prayer each day before or around lunch for your reflection and as a reminder to fast at lunch.
