Does anyone know how long we're suppose to fast for?
I've heard for 24 hours and I've heard for two meals.

Comments:

both are correct    
"If you eat dinner at 6:00pm and fast breakfast and lunch and then eat dinner again at 6:00 the following day you have fasted for both 24 hours and 2 meals"

"I think she is asking do u have to fast for two meals or full a whole twenty four hours.
I say two meals"

Two Consecutive Meals    
"From LDS.org: "Proper observance of fast Sunday includes going without food and drink for two consecutive meals, attending fast and testimony meeting, and giving a fast offering to help care for those in need."

"Nothing is beyond [Christ’s] redeeming reach or His encircling empathy. Therefore, we should not complain about our own life’s not being a rose garden when we remember who wore the crown of thorns! Having bled at every pore, how red His raiment must have been in Gethsemane, how crimson that cloak! No wonder, when Christ comes in power and glory, that He will come in reminding red attire, signifying not only the winepress of wrath, but also to bring to our remembrance how He suffered for each of us in Gethsemane and on Calvary!"
