Questions: What causes us to be burned out and weary? How do we deal with feelings of dissatisfaction with our circumstances and our lives? How do we move from focusing on what is not satisfying to rediscovering our true joy in Christ? What causes us to be unhappy with our current state of living? In what ways will engaging in practices of fasting and prayer give us direction to change our lives? What do we need to do in order to begin to learn new direction for our mind and our soul?
