Ernice's Daniel Fast Healing

A coworker came to work and announced that her church was going on a 21 day fast and it would consist of Fruit and Veggies and she challenged us to participate. I thought she must be losing her mind to think that I could survive for 21 days eating only fruit and veggies. Nevertheless, I did it. At first, my food tasted really bland because I wasn't using any seasonings and I wasn't creative with my menu. After we compared our menu's, they laughed at me and said I could use seasonings for my food and they offered some suggestions. I didn't want to lose cool points with the Lord and be less anointed if I broke any rules. Well, this turned out to be one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I've lost 30lbs, my blood pressure and cholesterol is normal and I've maintained for 2yrs! Ernice
Thank you for sharing your encouraging testimony!

Was vegetarian for 7 years

Hello Mike & Sue

Thank you for your reply.

I was vegetarian for 7 years (from 14-21) ,when I was 21 I had a cysts in my womb and my doctor said I needed surgery, a friend of mine told me to try the vegan diet. I decided to try it and postponed the surgery. since I was a vegetarian already ,I had to eliminate from my diet only the eggs and the dairy products.

I went back to my doctor 2 months later for a follow up, sure enough the cyst had disappeared.

I continued the vegan diet till l got pregnant with my first son, I was 29 years.during the first trimester I was weak, I almost miscarried the baby, my body was asking for animal protein( I guess because of the deficiencies (of iron omega 3 ,calcium etc..) ...I found my self preparing steak for breakfast..

After being a vegan for 8 years (without taking any supplements) I became the other extreme, I ate mainly beef, sea food ,dairy products, I guess every thing my body was missing. Eventually my son was born premature (at 30 weeks of my pregnancy)

I know the vegan is good for healing, it saved me from a surgery, however a person on this diet for a long period of time should be very cautious, should listen to his body, read about nutrition and make sure to take the right supplements.

I would like to join your prayer team.

Thank you
Ofra

Recipes for Desserts?

Hi, Do you have any recipes for desserts? My children are having a hard time giving up sweets. Thanks so much. Also a prayer request: My daughter has Osteogenesis Imperfecta. (brittle bone disease) Please pray for God's healing.
Michelle
Thanks for taking the time to write Michelle. One yummy dessert is smoothies. Some folks allow brown sugar and raw honey. Stevia is a good low calorie natural sweetener. You can buy Stevia, raw honey and raw sugar at Amazon.com.

Click here to search for Vegan dessert recipes. Avoid the recipes that call for items from the Daniel Fast Foods to avoid list.

Let's pray: Heavenly Father we are grateful that You know our bodies inside and out. We fast because we want to honor You with our bodies. We boldly trust You to heal Michelle's daughter. Make her bones strong and healthy. We give You all the glory! In Jesus Name!

Pain in My Tongue

Dear fellow christian, thank you for this opportunity to ask questions.

My Question: I know about the Dianel fast. I did engage in some day of Daniel fast and some days into the fast I started experiencing some pain on the inner part of my tongue. It makes it reasonably painful for me to swallow saliver, any explain why? please reply.

Stay blessed in Jesus name Amen
Jim
We're sorry to hear about your pain Jim. That is not a common side effect of detoxifying your body, but it is possible. You should consult with your health professionals. Let them know you are doing a Vegan Diet with no sugar or caffeine. Those are the two that cause the most side effects, including body pain and headache. Let us know what you find out, so we can share it with our other Daniel's Fast friends.

My wife and I are on the Daniel's Fast for three days now. I am doing great, but my wife is have a great deal of pain from her lower back all the way through her legs (both sides). Is this a normal side effect?
Alvin
Thanks for your e-mail Alvin.

We're sorry to hear of that your wife isn't well. We've never heard of back or leg pain as a side effect of the Daniel Fast Diet. It would be best to contact your medical professional/doctor. Let them know that you are on the 3rd day of a vegan diet. If there is a connection, please let us know!

Hope this is helpful.

Let's pray: Heavenly Father, we thank You for the faith You're giving Alvin and his wife to trust in You to do the Daniel Fast. We pray that you would heal his wife and remove the cause of her pain. In Jesus holy name we pray. Amen

Update on Sat, 1 Mar 2008
Thank you so much for your prayers...my wife is feeling better. Based on what I was told from other sources, my wife is experiencing some detox effects from caffeine, sugar, and other chemicals. The symptom is considering quite normal and should disappear within a week. Hope this information is helpful to other people who are having the similar problem.

God Bless,

Alvin
Thanks for your follow-up Alvin. We're all glad to hear your wife is feeling better. Your wife's detox side effects of Daniel's Fast Diet re-enforce how dangerous these chemicals can be for some of us.

Take care and happy Daniel Fasting!
Mike

Like a Ton of Bricks: Daniel Fast

Good Evening Farho's,

I first want to thank you for creating such an easy to read web site that is so inviting. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Moments ago, I was on my face, hands and knees, crying out to God in prayer for the healthy recovery of one of my best friends. Exactly one week ago, he was involved in a very bad car accident that has left him unconscious though responsive, in ICU. I was praising God for the blessings he has heaped on me and my family, and asking for God's blessing over my friend and his family, as well as his salvation. That's when the thought hit me like a ton of bricks: Daniel Fast.

Is it acting in faith, in accordance with God, to do a Daniel fast for a friends recovery and salvation? An urgent reply is greatly appreciated.
Caroline
Thank you for your encouragement Caroline.

Fasting with an attitude of love and to God's glory, is always in accordance with His will. We strongly encourage you to do the Daniel Fast and to pray for the healing of your friend. Let your life overflow with thanks to God for the healing, even before it happens. Unfortunately, our timing isn't always God's timing. Even Daniel prayed long and hard for 21 days for God to move His hand, but the spiritual battle took time and the answer was slow to come. Daniel 10:13 At other times, God answers immediately.

Make fasting a lifestyle!

The Daniel Fast is an idea way to make fasting a lifestyle! It is a healthy diet of foods that are healthy and tasty. Many people find the Daniel Diet/Vegan Diet to be a source of healing both physically and spiritually as well as emotionally. Fasting as a lifestyle is seeking comfort from God rather than from food.

When you make fasting a lifestyle, you live your life as an instrument in the hands of God. Fasting as a lifestyle is more than what you put in your mouth, it is what you do with your life.

Fasting as a lifestyle can mean denying yourself of negative influences in your life. Maybe you need to deny yourself access to the Internet or television after 7 PM. Then use the hours you gain to enjoy fun times with your friends and family.

What are your ideas for Fasting as a lifestyle? Send us your feedback!

Low blood pressure coupled with anemia

I would also like to thank God for healing me. You might recall that last week I had commenced on the Daniel fast that was to last for 10 days. I felt that all was going well but towards the 2nd day of my fast, I started feeling sick, eventually after 3 days I had to stop as it was having an impact on my body and I got quite sick. I have low blood pressure coupled with anemia and during my fast I might not have been eating enough to sustain my body.

I thank and praise God for making me well and I thank all of you for praying with me. Today is my first day back at work and I will continue my walk of faith and continue growing spiritually and praying with you.

May God bless you.
Good to hear from you! So sorry to hear you had trouble with your Daniel Fast. I will add your comments to our blog without your name, so others who have the same issues will be careful. You did the right thing to stop your fast. Thank you for being on our prayer team.

Blessed in more ways than one

Thank you for responding to my question. I am practically a vegan due to a major change in my health.

I have acid reflux (6 years) and after trying every medication on the market known to man I decided to go all natural. I am blessed in more ways than one, I am a 20 year breast cancer survivor, and I do not take my blessings for granted. When I changed my diet, due to the reflux, my body felt very healthy and clean. The additives, fats and anything with a face have to be eradicated from my life.

I grow my own veggies and buy organic or farmers grown fruit and veggies. The water, fresh fruit juices (I juice myself) and fruit and soy smoothies are the only liquids I have.

Yes, I must admit that the Daniel fast has made me aware of some of the ingredients in some of the so called healthy foods I digest every day.

However, to make a long story short I would love to join your prayer club. Some of the time I get so caught up in my everyday life that I forget to stop and pray.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

P.S. Don't worry about me jumping back in to my old style because I can't eat the way I used to. Hey, I don't miss it anymore like I use to. I forgot to mention that my faithful husband of 21 years is also on the fast with me.

Sincerely,
Amanda and Jeff

This Daniel Fast site is very educational

This site has been very educational. I thank you. This is the first time I am fasting. I have been learning how to eat over the past six months and I am getting much better, so I am ready to commit to sacrafice to the Lord. I am taking it to him in prayer on how far to go, a full fast or partial fast. I have had a few medical things, but I trust in his healing and will continue too. Regardless of the answer, I thank you for all the great information here. I had a lot of questions and all of them were answered already from previous questions. Again Thanks. Tara

God had healed me

Hello evryone, I just wanted to share the outcome of the Daniel Fast for me. First , it was like a 'break-down', a cleansing of all impurities that were bottled up in my body, Secondly, God worked a miracle on my job and third, God delivered me ..healed me from a misery in my body!! This misery had turned into a plague and I had suffered with it for a long time. I can't describe the feeling.. but God knew all about it.

I did not tell my Pastor and the Sunday after god had healed me the Pastor called me forth because God had given her a revelation that i had a testimony and I was able to tell the church what God did for me. He just keeps doing great things for me! I mentioned the fast to some friends the other day and now they are interested in it as well. Gotta give back to God!!
