The Daniel Fast Daily Devotional for Lent

DFLentCover280x448MY GIFT TO YOU!

Announcing the release of The Daniel Fast Daily Devotional for Lent which is a Kindle book and available through Amazon for FREE through February 17th.

ASH WEDNESDAY – Today is Ash Wednesday. Lent will start at sunset tonight (February 13th) and continue until the celebration of Resurrection Sunday (March 31).

Lent is a powerful time of prayer and fasting when millions of believers focus on Jesus and His life and ministry. It’s a time of personal reflection and examination. It’s a time of growth and drawing closer to the Lord.

Lent is a season for denominations that follow the Church Calendar (Liturgical Calendar), including Episcopalians, Lutherans, Methodists, Roman Catholics, Presbyterians and some Reformed Churches. Lent is also observed by a growing number of individuals who want to enter into an extended period of prayer and fasting.

During the Lenten Season, there are 40 days of fasting. These fasting days commemorate the 40 days following Jesus’s baptism that He spent fasting in the desert before starting His public ministry. The fast is “paused” on Sundays as believers celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and acknowledge that He is alive today!

  2. I ordered the Daniel Fast Devotions for Lent Kindle version and look forward to starting on March 6. But I have a question…………I have a friend who also wants to order the book but does not have a Kindle, only an iPad. Can the e-version be purchased and downloaded to her iPad if she does not have a Kindle?

    There is no specific time of day to eat or portion size for the Daniel Fast. We do advise 3 moderate meals per day with 2 small snacks.
    Here is a general food list to help you: All fruits, All vegetables, All whole grains, All Nuts and seeds, All legumes, All quality oils. Beverages: spring water, distilled water or other pure waters, and yes, tap water is good, if that is all you have available. MISC Items: tofu, soy products, vinegar, seasonings, salt, herbs and spices.
    For a complete list you can order a copy of the Daniel Fast Guidelines by going to and enter your email address, they will be emailed back to you. Also, if you to go to there is a wealth of recipes, and spiritual aids to help prepare, strengthen, build up and encourage you in your journey. I hope this is an encouragement, Be Blessed on your Fast!

    1. Is there a guide line or daily program available in terms of what to eat at specific times of the day?
    2. What are the portions you are allowed to consume?

    Hi Susan,
    I am really enjoying this devotional and learning so much during this season of Lent!
    I am only able to download the ebook to our family computer in the living room and find that I tend to get distracted by everything else on my computer (email, news, etc.) I do a lot better with an actual book away from my computer. Will your ebook devotional be published in a paperback version in the future?

    Hi Cynthia,
    Flavored waters . . . it all depends. The main thing is that the only beverage on the Daniel Fast is water. So, if the flavored water you are talking about is still water and free of all sweeteners, chemicals or artificial ingredients, then it would probably be okay. However, the fact that it says “naturally sweetended” makes it one that would not comply with the guidelines. I hope this helps!

    I came across this water called Glaceau Vitamin Water ZERO naturally sweetended. Under the Nutrition Facts is shows 0 sugars. Can this also be used as water during the fast?

    Thank you! I just stumbled onto your site today, and I started the Daniel Fast to continue on through Lent, so this will be perfect!

    I successfully completed the 21 day Daniel’s fast. I must say, it was not at all difficult for me as I live in Europe and organic food products are very easy to get in any super market. May be what was hard (apart from drinking just water in these below freezing temperatures) was to combine it with spiritual awareness. With your gift, I will now try to focus!

    Thank you for the gift and for helping me discover healthier eating habits! (I have lost 2 kgs, and intend to keep them off!)

    Thanks again, Susan and wish you a fulfilling Lent.

    I am looking forward to this time of fasting for the next 40 days and will seek God’s will in my life. Some things he is working in me are financial, health, career, fasting, family, myself (not necessarily in this order) . God has always taught me various things about myself spiritually, personal, physical, discipline, depending on him. He always has blessings, sometimes corrections, love, forgiveness, and wonderful unexpected surprises for example 2 1/2 years ago I found myself going on a mission trip to Africa with Joyce Meyer Ministry.
