7-Days Fasting: Quick Guide

BACK TO TOP: Day 1

Prayer & Fasting for the Remaining 6th and 7th Day

Ideally, a New Year’s fasting is one week. For others, they do a “partial fast” by eating 1 small meal each day. For the last 6th or 7th day, you can continue a devotion by asking God for a Rhema (book cutting is an option) and isolating yourself by praying at least three times a day (Daniel 6:10).

Remember: “Fasting without prayer is just dieting.”

DAY 6: ☀️ Full fasting and prayer

During Biblical times, people prayed at least 3 to 5 times a day, combined often with full fasting. It was a lifestyle.

  1. Make a list of specific things you want to thank God for. Write it in your prayer journal.
  2. Make a list of difficulties and trials you are facing, and ask God to give you a heart full of trust and joy.
  3. Thank God for all your “trials of faith” and difficulties.

DAY 7: ☀️ Corporate prayer

During Biblical times, people also prayed and fasted together. This is an opportunity for a church “prayer and fasting” gathering. You can break the fast and eat small meals afterward.
