How to Fast on the Sabbath to Receive Blessings... The Kind of Fasting That Pleases God

58 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. 
2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God. 
3 Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours. 
4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high. 
5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord? 
6 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? 
7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? 
8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward. 
9 Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; 
10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day: 
11 And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 
12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. 
13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: 
14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. - Isaiah 58

Here are two other notable prayers besides the Lord's Prayer.

Prayer #1: A Prayer For Our People...

The book of Daniel shows you the kind of prayer that led to the prophecy of the end times:
And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, 
“O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, 5 we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments. 6 Neither have we heeded Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings and our princes, to our fathers and all the people of the land. 7 O Lord, righteousness belongs to You, but to us shame of face, as it is this day—to the men of Judah, to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, those near and those far off in all the countries to which You have driven them, because of the unfaithfulness which they have committed against You. 
8 “O Lord, to us belongs shame of face, to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, because we have sinned against You. 9 To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Him. 10 We have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in His laws, which He set before us by His servants the prophets. 11 Yes, all Israel has transgressed Your law, and has departed so as not to obey Your voice; therefore the curse and the oath written in the Law of Moses the servant of God have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against Him. 12 And He has confirmed His words, which He spoke against us and against our judges who judged us, by bringing upon us a great disaster; for under the whole heaven such has never been done as what has been done to Jerusalem. 
13 “As it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us; yet we have not made our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities and understand Your truth. 14 Therefore the Lord has kept the disaster in mind, and brought it upon us; for the Lord our God is righteous in all the works which He does, though we have not obeyed His voice. 15 And now, O Lord our God, who brought Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and made Yourself a name, as it is this day—we have sinned, we have done wickedly! 
16 “O Lord, according to all Your righteousness, I pray, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain; because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people are a reproach to all those around us. 17 Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of Your servant, and his supplications, and for the Lord’s sake [a]cause Your face to shine on [b]Your sanctuary, which is desolate. 18 O my God, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our desolations, and the city which is called by Your name; for we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies. 19 O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name.” - Daniel 9
Prayer #2: King Solomon's Prayer for Wisdom

The prayer that caused God to grant riches, wisdom, and the death of your enemies:
5 One night at Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream, and God said, “Ask, and I will give it to you!” 
6 Solomon replied, “You have shown great loving devotion to Your servant, my father David, because he walked before You in truth, righteousness, and uprightness of heart. And You have kept this great loving devotion by giving him a son to sit on his throne this very day. 
7 And now, O LORD my God, You have made Your servant king in my father David’s place. But I am only a little child, not knowing how to exit or enter. 
8 Your servant is here among the people You have chosen, a people too numerous to count or number. 
9 Therefore give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people and to discern between good and evil. For who is able to govern this great people of Yours?” 

God Grants Wisdom, Riches, and Honor 

10 Now it pleased the Lord that Solomon had made this request. 
11 So God said to him, “Since you have asked for this instead of requesting long life or wealth for yourself or death for your enemies—but you have asked for discernment to administer justice— 12 behold, I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. 
God rewarded King Solomon because he'd asked for discernment to administer justice. 

Prayer #3: Little-Known Secrets About The Lord's Prayer

Yes. There are secrets about the Lord's Prayer. Some are embarrassingly simple to discover, because they're written on the lines right before and right after the prayer in your Bible.

The Lord knows what you need. He also cares HOW YOU PRAY.

I've never met more resistance than when telling people they should NOT PRAY where the mass shooters are going to show up and kill you. (Especially because God has sent warnings about this in advance. The church has steered you wrong and conditions you to do evil in the eyes of the Lord.)
5 And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their full reward. 
6 But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not babble on like pagans, for they think that by their many words they will be heard. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him. 9 So then, this is how you should pray: 
‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name, 10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’
14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive yours. 
The prologue and epilogue to the Lord's Prayer is so important, since salvation and healing comes by faith, and great faith, enough to cast out a demon, comes out not but by prayer and fasting.
16 When you fast, do not be somber like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they already have their full reward. 17 But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 so that your fasting will not be obvious to men, but only to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 
Afterward the disciples came to Jesus privately and asked, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” 20“Because you have so little faith,”He answered. “For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from hereto there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” But this kind does not go out, except byprayer and fasting. - Matthew 17:20
I tell you this for my Father's glory, and so that you'll believe, and so that you won't fall away:

I've never had more rewards in my life than those which come from my secret prayers to God. Of course, now that I've told you the secret, I'll just have to pray for God to kill you. Or rather for the discernment to administer justice, rather. (Smiley face.)

His yoke is easy. His burden is light.

If you doubt it, it might be because you've trusted in the ways of errant and imperfect churches, the world, and man instead of searching the scriptures instead of the ways of men that led you to struggle with God's perfect law in the first place. Anti-Satan coalitions can't be built from the endless conflicts of the narrow, distorted, and incorrect church doctrines.

Dare to be courageously different than the deceived masses. Like Noah is different. (Matthew 24:37-39)

The Goodness of God's Wrath

Whether enacted by the 10 plagues on the Egyptians, when drowning them in the sea, or turning them over to the Hittite invaders, God's vengeance is good. Where I struggled was with churches and organizations who, for whatever reason, disagree with God's perfect will.

For example, those who sit by and don't massacre Antifa (Deuteronomy 21:18), for example, but actively resist the far-right Muslim invaders who will surely put them to death. You have to start to wonder what side they're on. These Red shill infiltrators might be Communist sympathizers and/or maybe homosexual shills (Leviticus 20:13) posing as white nationalists or far right sympathizers.

Where I struggled with scripture is whether or not Dylann Roof actually committed any sin whatsoever in massacring hypocrites. If not, they hated him without cause, and therefore hate the Son of Man and the Father in heaven. In which case the wages of sin is death.

And, at the risk of being labeleed politically incorrect, it seems to me like Moses, for example, wouldn't have a problem with the massacre of people who aren't really with God. God has explicitly ordered them destroyed by the hand of his children Israel. (Exodus 32:15-34) By no means is this the only time He has ordered his children to destroy someone, such as the Edomites. (Amos 9; Obadiah 1; James 2; James 3). 

[Amos 9 specifically mentions Mount Caramel, ("even if they hide on top of Mount Carmel) in the destruction of the Edomites, in case you're wondering why the Branch Davidians were executed by fire by the Edomite-sympathizers, a Satanic elements within the US Government, presumably pruned to make it even more fruitful. John 15:2]

And therefore out of a very healthy fear of the Lord, I won't be a fool who goes against God by explaining away the actions of Samson, such as killing a thousand Philistines with a donkey's jawbone or the slaughter of Midian or the Caananites or the Laws Governing Warfare or any many, many, many examples from the Old Testament and New Testament when we're told to the soldier doesn't carry the sword in vain, that we're to obey our earthly masters, that a slave is not greater than his master, but many will twist the scriptures to their own destruction make it mean the opposite, to turnt he word of God into pacifism, when Jesus comes not to bring peace, but a sword, and the government will rest on his shoulders of Mighty God, Counselor, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.7 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.  - Isaiah 9:6
The Lord our God brings us the justification for mass violence to establish peace for the sake of the widow and the orphan.

The Minister ("to you for good", Romans 13:4) of God's wrath (Romans 13:3-4), "appointed by God" (Romans 13:1) is a terror to the wicked (Nahum 1:8, Jeremiah 11:18, Ezekiel 13, Romans 13:4), but "thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me" (Psalm 23:4). Yes, the same rod and staff that will "dash them apart like a potters vessel" Psalms 2:9, Revelation 2:27)

So you only prove yourself to be willfully ignorant if you try to tell me Jesus is a pacifist, who proved to the world that he loves the Father (John 14:31) (almost certainly referring to loving the Old Testament Law, doing the works that no one else did (John 15:24), i.e. the miracles but also "obeying My voice" walking in God's ways, keeping "My commandments, My statutes, and My laws" (Genesis 26:5-6)).

Because Pope Urban II of the first Crusade and the hero King Edward I, the Longshanks of the Ninth Crusade* would strongly disagree. As would the Founding Fathers who signed the Declaration of Independence in the name of God, the Creator and His Laws of Nature, the Mayflower Compact enacted "for the glory of God."
