Daniel Fast Diet Comments Oct. - Nov. 2007


Tue, 27 Nov 2007

We are preparing for a Daniel Fast in my Church in January. I found your web site upon googling Daniel Fast Recipes. Your web site is Wonderful. I was so excited when I found out you are serving our Lord in the Ivory Coast. My Aunt served there many years for the Baptists as a Medical Missionary. Her name is Joyce. May God bless you all and keep you safe. You are added to my Prayer Chain daily.

Currently we don't have a church home because the Church we were out was doing many things contrary to the Word of Christ. In short I am asking that you and your family pray for me an family during this time in our life. I do have specific goals during the time frame of praying, fasting and transformation. The number one thing is a God Center life guided by his wisdom and holy spirit in all things that I do. I appreciate your prayers given to me and my family and extend my prayers to you/your family. God Bless, Demetrius

God has told me for some time to build my fasting life. I was unsure where to start. Your page REALLY helped me start. Thank you! Rev. Hodari

I was also a vegiterian for 8 years and suffered from severe protein deficiency so I want to make sure that I won't harm my body during the fast. I am doing the fast for 2 reasons 1) a spiritual reconnection with God and his word and 2) health benefits. Aida

Daniel Fast Diet Comments Feb. - June 2007

Fri, 22 Jun 2007

I am doing a Daniel fast along with the "40 Days of Prayer and Fasting" led by the International House of Prayer. It was a call to prayer and fasting, especially for the Young Adult generation. I decided last minute that I wanted to participate. After researching the Daniel fast on your website, I decided that was the kind of fast I wanted to do. I was fasting for physical and spiritual renewal and for guidance in my career and education choices. I am currently on day 24 of my fast and I am feeling physically fit, have lost 13 pounds, feel much stronger in my faith, and I am starting to feel pulled in certain directions for my future. God is really pulling through; and I still have 2 weeks left! Thank you so much for this encouraging website (and for all the meal ideas)! God bless. Amy

I was referred to your website for info on a Daniel fast and found that the idea is to eat natural foods, not processed. From my perspective, nowadays the whole wheat, non-processed, natural or organic foods seem like they ARE from the "King's table" as they are often higher priced than the white processed stuff. Also, it seems to me that the purpose for fasting is the key. Eating six small meals may curb the appetite, and be healthy, but is it accomplishing the purpose of going without feeling some emptiness in anticipation of God's touch? I want to know how to balance going the distance with having the energy to accomplish daily tasks and still prepare meals for the other members in my family....keeping it simple.

Our church started the Daniel Fast on the 1st of March and finished on the 21st. We had 25 plus people participate. My husband and I have made some life style changes along with others in the congregation. We have decided to stay away from meats i.e...... beef and pork altogether. I just finished going through my cupboards and pulled anything that has additives, preservatives or artificial ingredients. No canned or processed foods for the rest of our lives. The church, as a body, fasted for 1. church vision, 2. fresh and new anointing of the Holy Ghost, 3. Possession of the Land (city for God). We believe these are honorable prayers and believe that our prayers will come to pass.

My husband and I have been married 2 years. When we married I asked God for at least 20 years with my husband here on earth; unless the rapture came first! I believe, along with the fast came the answer to my wedding vow prayer. We both feel so much healthier. Thank you for your prayers and support.

We wanted to thank you for your very helpful website. My husband and I were looking for info on the Daniel fast. Your info helped us greatly. We've been going through a very difficult time financially and are trusting God for His provision. We would appreciate your prayers. Thanks, Joey and Natalie

I just started the Daniel fast. I did hear that we could have a bread called "Ezekial Bread" it is in the frozen section of your grocery store. It is vegan bread. It has no perservatives so it will spoil quickly if not kept refrigerated or frozen.

Send us your Daniel Fast prayer requests, recipes and questions.

Daniel Fast Diet Comments January 2007

Tue, 23 Jan 2007

Thank you! This is my first time fasting. I thank you for this web page. My prayer life and my relationship with God have changed. My church is participating in the Daniel Fast. We are doing this for 31 Days. This webpage has helped me. It gave me good ideas on what to eat and not to eat. I did not know what I was doing, so I decided to do some research on the fast. This web page gave the best resources. Thank you again

This is a great support site. I am beginning a 21 day Daniel fast today. I have been able to complete this type of fast before and it really delivers breakthroughs! I am praying and fasting this time for spiritual growth, my future husband, and a school building for my students. I will shout for joy when my God delivers. Thank God I have a God who hears and answers our prayers.

Our church started the Daniels Fast today for 21 days. Many of the younger generation are doing this for the first time, and had a lot of questions. Your website was a great help. Thank you. The quickest way that I can explain to someone what to eat and not to eat it this: If came from the earth, and its in original form, you can have it. That means all fruits, veggies, whole grains, legumes, seeds, and herbs. You can take and cook from those, make juices, etc.... Its a guideline that we have used many times, and it makes things easier. When people ask about oils and spices, I tell them that if you can make it out of the products listed about, then its ok. That means spices made just from herbs, no additives, 100% natural pressed oils, unrefined, salt is ok, its from the ocean(part of the earth). We exclude all dairy products because they come from animals. So thats how we go about it. Galina Orlando, FL

I will be restarting a Daniel Fast on Monday. I have to restart because I just read what the actual guidelines for the fast were. I had been eating fried vegetables, white rice and some other no-no's. thus, I need to cut those out and restart. I am fasting for insight, wisdom and direction. I also hope that I would lose some weight. But weight loss isn't the focus. Gerald

Thanks for your note and encouragement Gerald. Don't be to hard on yourself about the fried vegetables. You were fasting with what you felt to be the "rules". I'm sure there are as many official rules for the Daniel Fast as there are people fasting. We have no idea if Daniel fried his vegetables or not. It is a good idea to avoid unhealthy fat! The line "margarine, shortening, animal fat, high fat products" doesn't have to exclude good oils like olive, peanut, and colza. Your friend in Abidjan, Mike Farho

This is the first time i am going to fast and i am nervous about it. The whole church is going to do the Daniel 21 day fast. i am used to eating anything and everything so i am not sure now ideas of what to eat. Could you please send me some recipe or something to help me complete my fast. I dont want to lose out. i am starting tomorrow 1/8/2007 so i need some ideas. Thank you

Google for vegetarian menus and recipes. You should find much good stuff to eat. We have a Lebanese stew (make it without the lamb), salad and a dip you can try out at http://www.Farho.net/lubi

My favorite food is a special natural peanut butter recipe on bananas! I mix natural peanut butter, bran cereal, ground flax, almond butter and peanuts together. Your friend, Mike Farho

Hello, I found out my pastor had our congregation start the Daniel Fast on 1/2/07 - I didn't know about it since I wasn't there on New Year's when it was announced. I plan to start it Tuesday and am glad your website details everything that I questioned. Suggestion: Ezekiel Bread, which contains Organic Sprouted Wheat, Organic Sprouted Barley, Organic Sprouted Millet, Malted Barley, Organic Sprouted Lentils, Organic Sprouted Soybeans, Organic Spelt, Filtered Water, Fresh Yeast and Sea Salt may be an even better alternative to anything containing flour. I look forward to writing with a praise report. MH

I am starting a 21 day fast today and at first I thought that this didn't go with my belief of fasting. Since fasting for me was to abstain from any type of food for a specific amount of days, but now reading more about it, I am happy about it. I pray that the Lord Guides me in the direction I need to take in my life. God bless you all. FD

I will be starting the 21 day fast today. Its interesteing how the Lord leads you in advance and prepares you to make this committment. I have done fasts in the past and I know from experience that you change by God's power in work in you. I'm excited to see what will come to surface and the changes that I'll make with this fast for 2007. Teresa

Thanks Mike, I am currently on Day 5 of a total fast and after day 11, I am going to start a 10 day Daniel Fast. The Lord is Good and I am breaking so many chains that are binding me. All of my sin keeps coming to the surface in my mind so I have the ability to repent and forgive, above all the Spirit keeps telling me to stop assaulting my mind and my flesh. I spent so much time consumed with so much including myself(selfishness). I realized I put so many false gods above The God Almighty. I will stay in prayer about the other foods and I want to thank you for your help, may the Lord shower you with his abundant BLESSINGS! Your Brother In Christ

Thu, 04 Jan 2007

Our church is going on Daniels fast for 21 days starting tomorrow ( 1/05/07 ) I am very excited about what will happen and can't wait to watch God work his miracles! I am a little nervous about just eating fruits, veggies, and water...but I know that God will be here to help me! I am fasting for my future husband & For guidance on my future like colleges, etc. I am so glad I found this website, it has really helped me! I will let you know how everything is going.

Thanks for your insight and help, I am a pastor in South Carolina (USA) and our church is beginning a 21 day corporate fast this coming Sunday (01-07-07). I have given them a copy of the food listings and people have had some questions (including me). Thanks.

Tue, 02 Jan 2007

I just started my Daniel Fast today and was unclear on exactly what to eat and not to eat because different people have explained it differently to me. Now that I've read your article, I have much more clarity on how I should proceed to claim the blessings of 2007. Thank you for the information and may God greatly bless and enrich your ministry to continue to give light and guidance to the body. 2007 is the year of completion and abundance. May this ministry be abundantly blessed to do all that is ordained for the kingdom.

Daniel Fast Diet Comments December 2007

Fri, 28 Dec 2007

What would you think of my fast becoming a way of eating for me. I have multiple physical problems. I've been told that what is in the Daniel Fast is the way I should be eating for life. Cathy

I am wanting to start fasting today. However, I have two major issues in my life that I need to deal with and the Daniel and St. Paul's fast speak to those issues. Priscilla

Thu, 27 Dec 2007

I'm going to be doing the Daniel Fast for 21 days in the beginning of the new year. Yvette

Hello-I was researching the Daniel Fast and was directed to your site. What a beautiful family. I hope your family had a wonderful Christmas. God Bless. Tamara

I could go into great detail as to "HOW" I ended up at your site, but to say it simply GOD SENT ME HERE. I don't know why, but that's all up to God. My family will be doing the Daniel Fast in January along with our church. Kristi

Sat, 22 Dec 2007

I have been body building for 4 years. I am 49 years old. I consume 40-50 grams of protien every 3 hours and supplement with energy drinks high in caffiene. My pastor has called for a 21 day Daniel fast. I am concerned about loosing alot of the body mass I have gained. He said the fast is strickly vegetables and water. I need the spiritual breakthrough that the fasting and prayer will yield but don't know if I am willing to give up the hard gains I have made. Al

Mon, 17 Dec 2007

our church has called for a 40 day fast. this will be my first time doing this so i printed out the food that i can have but, some of the recipes call for salt, can i have that? jennifer

Thu, 13 Dec 2007

My friend and I are joining a corporate 21 day fast and we have chosen to the Daniel fast. We are both addicted to cigarettes which is one of the reason we are fasting. We are being realistic that we will probably smoke during the fast. I believe God honors all sacrafices but do you think we will still be rewarded with the spiritual and supernatural blessing of a fast or will the smoking block blessing due to the sinful nature of it? Michelle

How would you respond to the modern ethical aspects of: packaging, transportation and carbon footprint compontents of a "Daniels Diet"? You may wish to add a paragraph or two on these very significant and timely considerations.

Thank-you and bless you, Your site has eased my lament with a practical solution, biblical insight and personal empowerment without a marketing gimmic. -david

Fri, 07 Dec 2007

Thank you for the great guidelines and helpful answers to questions. I was wondering if dried fruit (without preservatives or added sweeteners) are acceptable on the Daniel Fast. They're great mixed with nuts for on the go snacks but I'm worried that the natural sugars they contain might be excessive as they become concentrated in the drying process. Thanks, Viki
