Beginning the New Year with a 40 Day Juice Fast {Free Printable}

It's almost time to ring in 2014! When I think of the new year, I think of new beginnings...a time to start with fresh vision as I reflect on where my life has been and my hopes for the road ahead. I can think of no better way to gain a fresh vision for my life than to surrender it completely into the loving hands of my Father in Heaven with a 40 day juice fast.

For the past two years, I've brought in the new year with the Daniel Fast, but when a group of my blogging friends decided to do a juice fast, I decided {after much prayerful consideration} to join the others of the group who are choosing to do a 40 day juice fast. Now please understand that I'm not writing this post or doing this juice fast to draw attention to myself - no, not at all. This journey I'm about to begin is going to take the grace of God moving through me to get me to the end of the 40 days. It will be a time of spiritual growth as I seek the face of God with intentionality and focused purpose. If you've been reading here for a while, hopefully you know by now that I strongly believe in the empowering presence of God - His grace - that enables me to be who He created me to be and to do what He has called me to do. This year's fast is no different. I believe God is calling me to do this - something beyond myself - so that His grace can be magnified in and through me. It's a call to the complete surrender of my will in order to walk in obedience to what I feel to be His call at this particular point of my life.

I'm sharing my heart with you today so that I can ask for your prayers for me and the others who will be taking this journey with me. There are many on my prayer list who I will be interceding for during the 40 day juice fast which begins on January 1, 2014. There are areas of my life that need the touch of the mighty hand of God. I want more of God in 2014...more of Him and less of me...this is my heart's desire.

I have to admit I'm nervous about starting this 40 day juice fast on January 1. My spirit is willing, but I know how weak my flesh is. Realizing this, I have made a 40 Day Juice Fast Scripture & Prayer Journal printable that I'm going to be using to feed my spirit during this 40 day journey with Jesus. It's the main reason I'm writing this post today. I want to share my 40 Day Juice Fast Scripture & Prayer Journal with anyone else who may be on the same journey as I am on at the beginning of the new year. It is my gift to you, and I hope it will be a blessing to you on your 40 day juice fasting journey. Not feeling a call from God to do a 40 day juice fast? That's can still download this printable to use to bring in the new year with a focus on your relationship with God.

My prayers are with you all! May 2014 be a year filled with all the blessings of walking in the grace of Almighty God!

May God's Grace Abound in You, 



  1. I am new to fasting. The whole idea overwhelms me. I know in scripture it talks about when, not if. So it must be God ordained to do this at some point in your life. Where can I go to get more info on this and what juices are you drinking to sustain yourself? Thanks for this. I have been thinking about fasting for some time now. I hear it really deepens your spiritual walk. thanks

    1. Hey, Amy!

      Here is a great site to read more about fasting:

      Here is the link to my Juicing board on Pinterest. I'll be using the juices from these recipes:

      I've also found a lot of free juicing recipe books on Amazon for my Kindle.

      Hope this helps you! Something I didn't mention in my post, but should have was to be sure to seek the approval/advice of your physician before beginning any type of fast. Begin to pray and seek God about fasting. I'm praying for you as well.

      Happy New Year,

  2. Thank you for the download! Perfect for the 40 day fast we are planning to begin tomorrow. :) Blessings!

    1. You're welcome, Dalynn! Blessings to you on your 40 day fasting journey!

  3. My hubby and I are doing a modified juicing feast (through at least two meals/day) and I appreciate all the help I can get. Your journal will provide me some needed motivation and accountability. Thank you!

  4. Hi Laurie,
    I will be doing my second 40 day fast starting January 5, 2015. I have research many websites for fasting thanks for the information as I start my Journey.

    P.S. My daughter is joining me .

    Thank you Lord....
