Daniel Fast

Daniel Fast

21 days of fasting... January 11-31

What is the Daniel Fast?

The 21Day Daniel Fast is a partial fast, based on Daniel 10:23 in the Bible, in which Daniel says he fasted for three weeks.

Follow the link below for more information and recipes.

The purpose of the Daniel Fast is to deprive the body from eating certain foods or giving up something that steals your time in order to draw close to God. Other benefits include increased spiritual awareness, becoming stronger in faith and building spiritual stamina through special times of prayer and bible study.

Since this fast focuses on eating foods in their natural state, it also cleanses the body from many of the impurities introduced by all the processed food we often consume.

A typical Daniel Fast is described as avoiding any sugar, meat, preservatives, additives, fatty foods (such as butter) and caffeine. Keep in mind that there are other things that can be fasted like TV time, social media, video games or sleep.

During the fast, include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, natural grains, pure juices and water.

We ask that you please pray and ask God for direction and do what you feel is most beneficial for you. You can find more information and many recipes at ultimatedanielfast.com.

We are praying that this is a meaningful and very fruitful time and you will sincerely experience the benefits from this special season of prayer and fasting.
