“After I went through this journal I found it well written and giving one so much important divine inspirational information that will only help ‘renew ones total mind, body and spirit.’ I loved how after each day, one is to write their prayers. Wow, what one can get through fasting and prayers!

This journal was birth through my desire to participate in Lent. No, I am not Catholic, but I definitely believe that the blessings of the Lord fall on those who love Him enough to lay aside themselves for the sake of getting more of God. That is what fasting is all about.

It is about laying aside that thing or those things that obstruct you from being the best person you can be, and believing the denying of yourself, gives God room to maximize your potential at becoming the best you, or opening channels for you to receive answered prayers.

It is also about putting the “it” in your life down so you can move to your next level in God, as we coined our fast, “It Must Go Down So I Can Go Up.” Say that. Before you can even finish saying it, you already know what the “it” is that is keeping you from elevating in God.

Therefore, I first would like to tell you that I called each day’s Word, my morning manna. Then I would like to ask you to begin this journal with an open mind and heart. Pray and ask God to give you the will to complete your 40 days of fasting. I would also like to encourage you to use your morning manna daily to help someone you pass along the way.

Last, I would like to tell you to be prepared for whatever God is going to do for you because of your obedience! He is a great God, and He is willing to supersede all you can ask or think because He does the exceedingly and abundantly above all you can ask or think.

Today is the beginning of your road to healing through fasting and prayer. The beginning of your 40 days of giving up something  (my it), so you can “Go Higher”!

For the next 40 days, I want you to commit to giving up something (your it): Soda, Sweets, Lying, Facebook, Social Media, The Telephone or Cell Phone, Gambling, Alcohol, Gossiping, Sex, Wine, Television, Something but faithfully for the next 40 days!

So before you begin Day 1, write down what you are willing to give up…
