Rose's Daniel fast preparation

I'm starting the Daniel Fast tomorrow, for the first time. I have been getting myself ready for over a month.. I no longer drink regular coffee (only 1 mug of decaf in the mornings) , so when I start just drinking just water tomorrow, I will not have any withdrawel headaches. Plus, I bought a bunch of fruits and veggies today. I've eaten eggs for so long, that it' going to be strange to not start my day with one, but I'm confident that oatmeal and fresh fruit will help get me through my breakfast changes :D Rose

Great ideas Rose. Thanks for sharing.

Drink only water?

There is a recipe here that says to drink organic tea from lipton. I thought that only water was aloud during this fast? The scrpiture says only water.. i'm confused. Jannah

Sorry for the confusion. You are correct:
Daniel 1:12 I beg you, try your servants ten days. And let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink.
However, this is a Daniel Fast for today. We are following the Daniel Fast created by Rev. Elmer Towns, which was created by him to help Daniel Fast for Spiritual Breakthroughpeople today experience spiritual breakthrough. It is not focusing on an exact copy of Daniel's experience hundreds of years before Christ. Today, we are addicted to foods that are poisoning our bodies and destroying our health. Rev. Towns is encouraging us to remove these bad foods for a short term, to improve our spiritual and physical health.

If you desire to avoid more foods than Rev. Towns advises, that is OK. As we do the Daniel Fast, Lord Jesus, help us not to judge others who are doing it differently.
