The type of fast you choose is between you and God. He will honor your best sacrifice. You may want to include a combination of fasts. For example, you may want to participate in a Full Fast for 1-3 days and then continue with a Daniel Fast for the remainder of your time of consecration. Before beginning any type of fast, consult your physician.
Drink only liquids (you establish the number of days).
