Resources for Lent 2017

Lent 2017
Lent is the season of preparation in the weeks leading up to Easter when believers reflect on Jesus Christ—his life, death, burial, and resurrection. Such preparation often includes days of fasting. For more information on Lent, read my blog post, “The Daniel Fast and Lent 2017.”

You can choose from a variety of ways to participate in Lent 2017. There is no hard and fast rule as to what your fast should look like. For example, some people will do a Daniel Fast for the entire Lenten season (March 1 to April 15). Others will fast one day a week from now until Easter. Maybe you want to do a combination of the two types of fasts. That’s fine. But whatever you decide, you want your prayer time to be as powerful and effective as possible.

I want to help you. Following are a few resources that will keep you on track:

  1. The Ultimate Guide to the Daniel Fast – If you’ll be doing a Daniel Fast anytime during Lent, you need to get a copy of my book. I truly believe the information I provide will help you stay focused and finish strong. The book provides 100+ recipes, 21 daily devotions, meal plans, grocery shopping lists, and more. You can purchase The Ultimate Guide to the Daniel Fast in most bookstores and online.
  2. Lent 2017 Prayer Guide  Take advantage of this FREE guide! Simply download it and print it. I recommend putting the list in a highly visible place, such as on your mirror, refrigerator, or in your Bible or journal. 
  3. Lent 2017 Daily Prayer Points – If you’d like daily accountability during Lent, you can subscribe to my Lent 2017 Prayer Points mailing list. Each day I will send you the prayer point from the Lent 2017 Prayer Guide. The email will also include a Scripture, prayer, and sometimes ministry action steps.

As we humble ourselves, pray, and seek the Lord during Lent, we will see God pour out His favor in miraculous ways!

    While researching the differences between the Atkins and Paleo diets, I wanted to compare the Daniel Diet. Here I am, I just bought your Ultimate Guide and I look forward to my husband and I’s journey. All I can say is, God is perfect in every way, and He has orchestrated this walk for us and the needs of our family. I am glad we listen and are starting our journey off with the right tools. Thank you.

    In Christ,
    Troy and Stephania

    Hello.Kristen..I have been doing the daniel fast since 1/3/17…..the first 21 days was marvelous…i veered off a day, but went right back to it…I was feeling so good with what I was eating and the recipes that you posted…I started to veer off again…and now have decided to stick with it…the only thing I really need to focus on is prayer and the contact and connection with God…I have to make prayer a priority….don’t get me wrong I do pray..every day and thank God for waking me up….But I need to stay consistent…Thank you for your recipes and motivation..God bless…

    • Gladys, thanks so much for your comments! Yes, it DOES feel good to eat healthy, doesn’t it? And God is honored by how you’re taking care of the body He has given you. As far as your prayer time, you’re not alone. I, too, struggle with making time for intercession. We need the Holy Spirit to move in our hearts! I pray God will give you a burning passion for prayer as you seek Him through the Daniel Fast!

    • Father God, I pray you will strengthen Yoshiba. Your Word says your power is made perfect in weakness, and we believe it. Pour out your power and bring victory. In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
