Church Fast

January 7-16

What is the Daniel Fast?

The Daniel Fast is based on the diet eaten by Daniel, an Old Testament prophet taken captive from his home and placed in King’s Nebuchadnezzar’s household. The Daniel diet is a restricted diet designed as a modified fast meant to be followed for a short time, not as a lifetime eating plan. The purpose of The Daniel Fast is not to lose weight, but to become closer to God. Talk with your doctor before starting The Daniel Fast, particularly if you have any health issues.
