Daniel Fast

Dear Friends and Beloved Guests: 

We extend a warm welcome to you to participate in our upcoming 21-Day Daniel Fast, commencing on January 7, 2024. This transformative journey is not merely a fast but a dedicated period for reflection, prayer, and drawing closer to God. 

Details of the Daniel Fast:

• Start Date: January 7, 2024

• Duration: 21 Days

Scripture Inspiration:

The Daniel Fast is rooted in the biblical accounts found in the Book of Daniel:

• Daniel 1:12: “Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables [pulses] to eat and water to drink.”

• Daniel 9:3-5 “So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes. I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed: “Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments”

• Daniel 10:2-3: “In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.”

Spiritual Significance:

Embarking on the Daniel Fast is a spiritual commitment that mirrors Daniel’s devotion in seeking God’s guidance and strength. It is an opportunity to come together as a church to align our hearts and minds with Christ, allowing for personal and collective spiritual growth.

Daily Prayer Commitment:

During these 21 days, we will engage in daily prayer for one hour, dedicating ourselves fully to the Lord. Prayers range from a variety of topics that are outlined in our fasting calendar. Scriptures are included to guide and begin your prayer time. Pray for specifics under every topic and break down strongholds, principalities and powers, in high places. Remember that current events and the darkness of the hour dictate our intercessory prayer as the Church of Jesus Christ. We must shine our light in this world, it is humanity’s only hope.

Fasting Details:

A Daniel Fast is a biblical-based partial fast that typically involves consuming only fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds. Foods like meat, dairy, refined sugars, and leavened bread are avoided. It’s a plant-based diet that emphasizes simplicity and often includes foods like salads, soups, and smoothies.
