"I have been on this fast for 4 days now (which I commited to doing 7 days)and I can truly say that I have been tempted to go back to my regular way of living. The more I have been tempted the more I have been praying and asking God for help. Since being on this fast I have been able to hear God clearly and he has told me the things that I need to work on within myself. I understand now that my eyes are the open doorway to sin and doing things outside the will of God. Thank God for the Daniel fast!!! My life will never be the same." Name withheld

The original Fast by Daniel in Chapter 1 didn't help him lose weight, but this anti-junk food Daniel Fast by Rev. Elmer Towns does seem effective at helping people shed those nasty pounds that stick to us. I lost 25 lbs in 2000, by walking three times a day for 20 min each.

Let's pray: Heavenly Father, we thank You for our friends who are doing their best to say no to the flesh and its appetite for junk food. Jesus, You know what it felt like to be tempted. Be our strong tower of refuge, when we are tempted to blow it and eat that food we should avoid. Fill us with the power of your Holy Spirit, so that His delicious fruit of love would flow from us and surround us. Deliver us from temptation! In the Name of Jesus, our risen Savior and Lord.

4 Quick Preparation Tips

1. Start looking at labels and doing your shopping before fasting!
My first few days were a challenge. I was not used to reading the food labels and making sure I packed better lunches. Man was that work!!! My menu? Most of my items came from a semi-health food store. -Alison

2. Check out Jentezen Franklin's fasting information!
I will be once again joining Jentezen Franklin for the 21-day corporate fast on Jan. 6th?? (it may be a different date this year), and I look so forward to God's great power over my prayer requests and in favor of my dear family for growth in Jesus Christ to glorify His holy Name. God bless you all! -Susie
Thanks for sharing Jentezen Franklin's fasting information with us Susie! I would also recommend downloading his excellent November 2008 Connection magazine guide about Fasting. If you click on the link, you can download Jentezen Franklin's free PDF version of Connection. It has many pages of helpful advice.

3. Start a journal or notebook
Its a time I reflect on my realationship with God.Pray about it and know why you are doing it, what you want to achieve in the fast. Keep a note book to record your reflections, meditations, your lows and your highs etc. -Helen
Start your Daniel Fast notebook now, before your fast, with your prayer requests, goals and ideas. Prayer Journals at

4. Begin praying before your fast!
I personally like to start praying about a month before the fast. I have only done 21 day no food total fasts, so I am not an expert Daniel Fast respondant. I do know that when I start a fast without praying first, I usually fail. -Eddie
Thanks for your emphasis on prayer before fasting Eddie!

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

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.

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!!

Great recipes, testimonies, encouragement

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. Yvette
