Googled Daniel Fast

Bible Study with Plano friendsImage by [[Neo]] via Flickr
I chose a 40 day Daniel Fast to begin 2008. Hadn't really heard much about it. Just chose it from the book of Daniel.  A few days after starting the fast, I began studying the book of Daniel with Beth Moore in Women's Bible study and she challenged us to do a "Daniel Fast". I felt like that was a confirmation. I kind of just made up my rules as I went. I said it was whatever grows naturally.

I decided to do it again for 2010 and was being asked questions by all of my friends. Amazingly, when I googled Daniel Fast - Your website answers and agrees with all I had planned. I believe it is revelatory from the Lord. I also believe it is powerful to break the strongholds in our flesh.  Bless you for your hard work on this great website!
In Christ,
Kim
Thank you Kim, for your encouraging words. Hope you have a great Daniel Fast this year too.

Trust me, it was a sacrifice

Thank you for your follow through. I am most impressed. Your web site is excellent, as is. Very 'user friendly', as they say. I credit it and the Lord (not necessarily in that order! You understand. :-)) for helping through my first extended - 5 day - Daniel fast. Next time I might go longer. Even though you are eating pretty well (i.e., healthily) on this fast, I didn't realize how important less healthy foods/beverages were to me. Trust me, it was a sacrifice. I was glad when the 5 days were over! I also want to thank you for your encouragement and prayer prior to my fast. It surprised me at how much that meant to me. I truly felt the Lord in it. As for outcome, only God knows that. I am blessed every day, but have not seen the immediate evidence of the focus of my fast. But, then, that's the definition of faith, isn't it?!

God directed and arranged my schedule

I would like to first thank God, for placing this website on your heart. It was a great resource of recipes, testimonies, and words of encouragement. During my time of fasting, God has directed and arranged my schedule. You see, I’m a stay-at-home mom that home-schools. I was struggling with my prayer time, reading the bible, just having time to commune with the Father. During and after the Daniel Fast I feel rejuvenated, rested, see things more clearly and my joy has been replenished. God has not only changed my schedule to spend time with him, but he has also, given me time to join a women’s bible study group. God is surely Awesome.

Mon, 14 Jan 2008

Pasta & cheeses are my hardest foods to give up. (and coffee) But I can do it. This is the first fast I've ever done.. After reading about fastings and all the benefits, I became excited about it and thought I'd go for it. I have several things I need to see a breakthrough in.. So I'm believing God in all areas as I become more sensitive to him, while crusifying my flesh. LOL. thanks guys! Ya'lls website is real helpful. Barbara

Sun, 13 Jan 2008

A relative recently started the Daniel Fast and told me about it. I found your web site and think that this will be easy for me to follow. Thank you, Saveria

Wow your Q&A portion of the Daniel Fast page is amazing! I have gotten really inspired and motivated into doing the fast due to it! I hope that God continues to use ya'll in his plan for HIS glory. May God Bless you and protect you guys over there! Much Love, Joey

My name is Patrick Bass, I am a church planter in the Phoenix-metro area of Tempe, Arizona. My wife, Grace, has recently written a Daniel Fast Cookbook with her mother, Lynda. The book has been endorsed by Elmer L. Towns and is currently being printed for distribution. Would you consider adding this cookbook to your list of books and other resources? We have free recipes and ordering information online at http://www.danielsfastcookbook.com. Thanks and God bless you, Pastor Patrick Bass

God has called me to fast for a ministry I am working with and I want more information on the daniel fast as I am unable to go totally without food. I do well with a partial day fast but not a whole day. I have tried the daniel fast once and it helped. I am currently fasting sugar. Donna

My church has just started a 21 day Daniel fast, it is for the LORD's will to be made clear to each of us and to bring unity to our church and community. I like your web site, and just wanted to say may GOD bless you each and every one. Susan

Please add my child that's in Iraq right now to your prayer and fasting list, not just him but all the Troups that are there because we all know only God can bridge the gap and weather the storm for us all. I feel that God will take care of each and everyone of them in his own special way. Mary

I just wanted to take the time to thank you both for such an awsome website! The information you provided for the Daniel Fast is exceptional and much helpful. I have been doing the Daniel Fast for 3 years now as I was inspired through Free Chapel (Pastor Franklin) and I have really seen the hand and power of God move in my life like never before. Although I didn't have all of what I could and couldn't eat, I have it now thanks to you. I do as Pastor Franklin with the first week just water only and then go into the Daniel Fast. This is day 3 for me and I'm so excited already. I'm certainly passing on your site to many of our members within the congregation and I believe this will help encourage others to join in on this powerful fast. Thank you again, Evangelist Tanya

Tue, 08 Jan 2008

There is a preacher [Pastor Franklin] on one of the major Christian stations and sometimes on secular stations that has rallied people the first of each year to join his church in a fast. Many do not attend his church because of geographical distances, but they do join in a corporate body fast like during Esther's day. That is why I have done it for three years...not only for that, but God has led me to. Michael

First of all thank you so much for your page and all of the great info and helpful resources. May God continue to bless you. I have 2 best friends that I am doing the Daniel fast with for the second time. Our first time was Sept 2007. It was great and we saw many prayers answered and God moved for us in many ways. We researched the fast on the internet and learned alot from trial and error and each other. However,this time it seems to be more of a battle for us and we really feel God is going to move in mighty ways for us,families,church and our community. Frances

Our church is currently promoting a '30-days of fasting for spiritual breakthrough' It is left up to the discretion of each member to select a fast and length thereof for themselves. I chose the Daniel Fast, and found your website when researching the specifics of this fast. Thanks for being there! Donna

Daniel Fast Diet Comments January 1-7, 2008

Mon, 07 Jan 2008

I too thankyou for an awesome website. We as a church will begin our Daniel Fast Jan 9th. It is good to hear the reports of people that have done the fast and have seen good results due to seeking God's face in a way He's set aside for us in His Word. I am very encouraged and looking forward to the good things He has in store for each of us. God's blessings to you all. Ruthie

Sun, 06 Jan 2008

I found your site upon Googling Daniel fast. Every year our church in in GA (Free Chapel)is encouraged to start off the year with a 21 day fast--Pastor Franklin actually does a week of just water and then follows with a daniel fast. Most follow a daniel fast. This is only my second year EVER trying a fast. Last year I only made it 5 days--and I felt bad not going the whole 21 days. My goal this year is 10 days and no guilt because I agree it is important to make a decision and then stick with it-- so I did not want to make a choice I was not sure I could follow through with. I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your site and to thank you for the information provided. Brenda

My husband and I have started the Hallelujah Diet and after reading about the Daniel Fast I have noticed that its the same diet. We started this lifestyle for health. We are in our 60's and many people in our church have cancer and other serious health challenges. I pray that people who go on the Daniel Fast see the results of feeling better and benefit from their committment to pray and fast for church. God Bless, Roseann

Thu, 03 Jan 2008

Thank you so much for this website. I started the Daniel Fast yesterday and will go for ten days. I have prayed for god's annoitment and his strength. I will see after the ten days if god wants me to continue for 21 days. god bless. Ken

Wed, 02 Jan 2008

Hi, I typed in Daniel fast and found your great web site. Our church body will be fasting for 21 days beginning today. I am so thankful for your site!! Helping me with what to eat and what not to eat. The recipes look delicious too!! My husband and I are both praying for healing. Donna

Tue, 01 Jan 2008

This is a great web site and very helpful. Thank you so much for putting it all together. I have also found a treasury of wonderful vegan, nothing artificial, pure whole foods recipes at www.hacres.com. It's a wonderful help for the Daniels Fast. Blessings to you all, Linda

Is there a daily regimen or routine you can recommend? If possible I would like some guidlines for eating,(when to eat, how many times) when to pray and read the word, when to start this every day and when to close everyday. Santosh

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.

Tue, 06 Nov 2007

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

Thu, 01 Nov 2007

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

Tue, 30 Oct 2007

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

Tue, 16 Oct 2007

Thanks for having the information in reference to fasting on your site. The information was extremely helpful and enlighting. Thanks, Princess

Tue, 09 Oct 2007

Wed, 03 Oct 2007

A friend told me about your website and I am interested in trying the 21 day fast with veggies and fruits. Donna

Daniel Fast Diet Comments from 2006

Fri, 27 Oct 2006

I am currently getting prepared to start a Daniel fast for several reasons: closer relationship with God, financial breakthrough, not looking to counterfeit options of comfort(including food), breaking idols in my life, better relationship with my husband and family life. I am very ready and excited about the results. Michelle

Tue, 10 Oct 2006

I was led to do a Daniel Fast for 14 days. I was looking for spiritual breakthrough in not accepting counterfeit comfort but looking to have a more intimate relationship with my Father God. I asked Him for help, and decided to go on a fast. I asked Him how many days and I heard clearly 14. I was tired of using restraint in the counterfeit ways to receive comfort in my life. I wanted to receive full deliverance. It was amazing to me how easy it was to fast - because God was with me. I never craved or had a break in my fast. I never saw it as a diet. I am confident the Father has released me from these areas in my life to a more full life in Him. The side effect was feeling better too. Praise the Lord.


Wed, 20 Sep 2006

I went on the Daniel's Fast two years ago for spiritual reasons, and I saw so many miracles. My husband and I went on a 40 day Fast. No Meat, No Sweets, and No Bread. It was hard at first, but every day got better. We continue the fast off and on for a year and a half. I lost 70 pounds and a lot of my illness left my body. Most of all, my husband and I saw God work right before our eyes. We saw miracles unroll. So, we told our Pastor about the Daniel's Fast, and the whole church went on a 40 day Fast with us. At the end of the 40 days, several bodies were healed of sickness. Thank God for the Daniel's Fast. Sis. Janice

Wed, 02 Aug 2006

I am currently doing the fast. I find it to be an great spiritual formation. I do the fast all the time and it really works.

Thu, 8 Jun 2006

I want to fast using the Daniel Fast Diet for healing. I am struggling with the possibility of cancer. I will have biopsies today for breast cancer and it doesn't look good. I am trying to build up my immune system. Thank you, Ruth

Mon, 22 May 2006

Hello. I am presently doing a 40-day Daniel Fast. A couple months ago, I completed a 21-day Daniel Fast and the results were astonishing. I experienced wonderful insights and breakthroughs. The positive affect it made on my health was noticed by my physician. Thank you, Mitchell

Sun, 07 May 2006

I'm interested in the Daniel diet for two reasons. One, I'm a Christian, and two, I could stand to lose about 30 pounds. God Bless, Anita

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

Wed, 12 Dec 2007

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
