I have tried different variations of fasts in years past without it leading to much spiritual growth. One year I gave up wine, one year breakfast, another year lunch once a week. Finally last year I settled on a lenten practice that I will continue this year, because it actually enhanced my spiritual life. I gave up 30 minutes of my day to pray for other people. This year, I aim to spend the first 30 minutes of my day during lent focused on Scripture and prayer.
