I am elated that you have responded to the call of God to fast and pray for 30 days. It won’t be easy, but all things are possible if you can believe!
This year, our 30-day fast will begin on THURSDAY, February 1, 2018 and conclude at 11:59 p.m. on FRIDAY, March 2, 2018. You will have four fast options to choose from:
• DANIEL—Fruit, vegetables, juice and water only. (see list)
• DENIAL—No food from 6AM to 6PM.
• DESERT—WATER is your only beverage option for the entire period of time. Choose healthy
meal options! (see list)
• DROUGHT—No television or internet social media (ie. Facebook and Twitter) with the exception of the news and religious programming. (recommended for teens and students)
All members are asked to abstain from sinful habits, or habitual behaviors in addition to the options above for maximum results. (Examples: cursing, gossip, overeating, alcoholism, ungratefulness, sexual sins, etc. See Galatians 5:19-26 and Hebrews 12:1) Prayerfully after the fast, you won’t look back!

Read labels and eat accordingly as you have previously been instructed by your health care professional. If you are unable to do the full fast, assess if there are parts you can do. This fast also includes no use of nicotine products or non-prescriptive drugs.
I’m encouraging you to pray at least three times daily during the fast, in the morning when you get up, midday and in the evening before you go to bed. Keep a prayer journal. Meditate and pray using the daily bible readings. Your prayer requests should include:
SELF—Pray for your personal growth, your improvement and other specifics pertaining to what you need.
SITUATIONS—Pray for specific situations you need help with.
SUCCESS—Pray for the ability to do well spiritually and physically.
SURROUNDINGS—Pray for The Legacy Project, other church projects and for others in need, etc
Additionally, you should have two accountability partners to lift you up and hold you responsible during this fasting season.
