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."

"Just as the landfill requires dedicated work and attention, laboriously applying layer after layer of fill to reclaim the low-lying ground, our lives also require the same vigilance, continually applying layer after layer of the healing gift of repentance.…Our Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ, feel sorrow when we choose to remain in sin, when the gift of repentance made possible through the Atonement can clean, reclaim, and sanctify our lives. When we gratefully accept and use this precious gift, we can enjoy the beauty and usefulness of our lives... "
