The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, which means that you will eliminate some common things from your daily
diet, but will have generous options available. Focus on eating fruits and vegetables that are pure and
simple. We have included a list of foods to eat and foods to avoid. If you have any condition, which would
prohibit you from being a part of the Daniel Fast, there are other options. Choose something from your
diet; a specific foods or beverages, and fast in that manner for the next 21 days. Remember, the details
are not as important as the spirit in which you participate.
(If you have any known medical conditions or suspect such conditions, consult your doctor before
beginning the fast)
The fast is a spiritual discipline designed to better connect us with God. We are fasting in order to deepen
our relationship with God and to walk in step with His plan and purpose. The best way to do this is to
redirect our food source. This is accomplished through substituting our regular food intake with Bible
reading, praying and journaling. The overall goal is to experience a genuine hunger for spending time with
God. The details of the fast are between you and God -‐ use this time to focus on Him. God is certain to
bless your life in new and exciting ways during the fast. We encourage you to write down your prayers
and the many ways God reveals Himself to you.
