Share your testimony here about how you experience on the Daniel Fast touched your life.

    will fasting bring me closer to God ,I am backslidden,lost my first love,hard to pray?

    June 16, 2015
    • That is the whole purpose of fasting, Kel. Yes, enter into the fasting experience. Meet with God throughout the day. Talk to Him. Open your heart to Him. Do that consistently and you will begin to hear His voice! He is calling you, dear one.

    21 days ago, I asked the Lord at 5:20am on a Monday am. what did I need to do in order for my 8 beautiful grand-children never to get pregnant and they graduate from college and have a career and most of all, love the Lord with all of their heart. The Lord is keeping his promise on a daily basis. This am @ 5:20am completes my Daniel fast of 21 day fast. To God be the glory.

    How encouraging these comments have been! Thank you! I am on Day 14 of this fast. The Lord has used it to give me peace & revelation about my adult children. One of my kids, a child who had a very rough start in life, sadly is now incarcerated. I have been praying that Michael would lay all the addictions at the feet of the Lord, and fall in love with Jesus & His Word. Michael had wanted to be a street pastor at one time. I would appreciate prayer for him as well. Many thanks and again, thank you for these supportive comments. God bless each of you!

    This is my 2nd fast. It is most challenging. The first fast was great but this time I want to give up but I refuse to. Please keep me in prayer. I know I can do this

    Hi Susan,

    I have been doing a dry fast from dawn until dusk during Lent for the past +-15 years but then eat whatever I like when breaking my fast. This year, I will continue to fast in the same way but only eat foods on the Daniel List of foods and will continue for the entire Lenten period. Please pray for my family and I and I know and have faith that the LORD JESUS CHRIST will break the bonds which the devil might think he has over us. I will pray for all of you as well. God Bless you all. :)

    so on the Daniel are not suppose to eat anything that contains sugar??

    January 20, 2015
    • Jeanette #

      can you drink the naked 100% juice smoothies??

      January 20, 2015
      • Daniel Fast Team #

        Hi Jeanette,
        Water is the only drinking beverage on the fast, and I am not familiar with the ingredients of naked drinks. However, Blended fruits and vegetables (made more hearty like Smoothies) are considered a “meal replacement” and these are allowed on the Daniel Fast. Simply juicing fruits/vegetables get’s into a grey area and could be a bit too close to drinking juice (which is what I’m thinking naked drinks are) rather than a smoothie as a meal replacement. I hope this helps!

        January 20, 2015
      • Phillip Williams #

        I wouldn’t… the Naked juices are actually not good for you in the first place.

        January 22, 2015
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      No a”added” sugar (sweeteners of any kind).

    This is my third Daniel fast and my second year. I pray and am very proud to be God’s child. he always comforts me and helps me through everything in life. All I want is to hear his voice and hear what he wants for me. I find it so hard to hear him, why is this.

      you hear God in your heart not your Ears. The more you study the word of God the more familiar you become with his voice.

    Hi all, This is day 1 of the Daniel fast for me. I am a first timer and 16 weeks pregnant. I feel I need to be closer to God and He will guide my steps as I go.
    I am doing this on my own. Any tips would be appreciated


    January 18, 2015

      Hi Ginnie,
      We suggest that nursing or pregnant mothers review the Daniel Fast eating plan and then use wisdom and the instructions from their health providers to modify the fast to meet their physical needs. The Daniel Fast is a very healthy way to eat, however during this time the body has extra demands on it you might want to add a little chicken, fish and/or dairy products prepared in Daniel Fast friendly ways. Be Blessed!

      January 21, 2015
  12. Hi Everyone, started the Daniel fast on the 8th of January 2015. I only eat one meal of vegetables [lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes and carrots] and cashew nuts in the evening, while I just drink water throughout the day. I’m believing God for His power to work mightily in me this Year. I spend, on average, 3 hours a Day praying in the Spirit and confessing the Word.

      You are correct, continue on in your fast making the adjustments needed. And Yes…God knows your heart, He is faithful and always watches over His word to complete it! Be Blessed on your Journey!

    Hello everybody! This is my first time doing the Daniel Fast, and I just have to say that it is amazing thus far. I’ll admit it gets tough but that’s only if you aren’t prepared with the foods to eat. I decided to do this fast on my own. My church nor my family and friends didn’t coerce me. I wanted to do this fast because I believe that God will honor my sacrifice. Not only that I believe that God is going to answer my prayers because of my willingness to want to get closer to HIM. My prayer for you all is that God answer your prayers and that you gain strength, knowledge and a closer relationship with HIM and whatever it is that you’ve prayed for! I thank God for this blog and it’s exciting to see people excited about our savior! I’m looking forward to a fantastic powerful year that God is going to show himself mighty and strong in everyone of our situations and our lives! Keep me lifted as I will be doing the same for each and everyone of you.

  16. Day 8 if the Daniel fast (started on the 4th). Praying for Gods direction and strength. I’ve fasted a lot in the past but have never done a Daniel fast. It’s very challenging but in the words of David, “I will not offer to The Lord that which did not cost me anything”. It’s very encouraging to see you all doing this I pray for you Gods strength in the weeks to come.

    I will be starting the Daniel fast with my best friend, her mom and her church. I’m asking God for strength, teaching, learning, growth, willpower for this 21 days fasting.

    Hello! After the new year, I started a new plan on the BIBLE APP on my Iphone and it led me to the 21 Day Daniel Fast. I was completely drawn into this “fasting” and didn’t know what God wanted me to give up until this Sunday (Jan. 4th). It was the giving up what DANIEL did! It’s my fourth day and although I get slight headaches and mild dizziness, I know this is for the LORD — Don’t let Satan discourage you! Thank you Susan for the recipes and this amazing blog!! God Bless!

    Hi everyone, my name is Isabella I fasted so much in the past and God blessed me so much. I have started Daniel fasting on the 5th I look forward to what God has for me. Basically I’m praying for revival spirit and relationship with the LORD. I have lost control of my eating habits this has made me sluggish in my health and is affecting my spiritual life. I hope for physical renewal too. Be blessed everyone.

  21. God bless you
    I started today with Daniel Fast.
    Can i have oatmeal that comes with the fruits in it. also would like to know if
    i can have the wheat pita, and what type of eggs if i can. and any cereal.
    Thank you

    January 5, 2015
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Oatmeal is fine, but read the ingredients on the ones with fruit since they usually have sweeteners added to them. Wheat pita bread would not be allowed due to the leavening, but again check the ingredients list. The Daniel Fast is totally plant-based, so eggs are not allowed on the fast. Shredded wheat is a boxed cereal that can be found without sweeteners and additives in it, but again read the ingredients list to find one that’s good. I hope this helps!

    This is my second year doing the Danile fast. Last year was awesome!
    Although I was goign through a recent loss. but i know that God answeres prayers. Even though the resposne may hurt at tiems. Itis for our own good.
    Last year there were days when I incoperated ‘total fast ‘ as well.
    no food or water.
    I am seeking God to make a move in my life. i am praying for a spouse. but more than all, that God will intervene in all my affiars.
    That my walk will be closer to him than ever before.
    That I will hear His voice and do his will.
    Let us continue to pray universally for our brothers and sisters.

    Thanks so much Susan for all your blogs, emails and encouragment.
    I pray that you wil be continually inspired by our Father, Jesus Christ.

    God bless you.

    I started the fast on yesterday, I am giving up all social media such as FB, IG, SC and etc. I am a full time worker and wanted to know beside listening to gospel music while at work, what more can I do to successfully complete this fasting on work days.It is very hard to pray while working.

    I am asking for prayers for strength as i continue this fast for the next weeks to come, looking to walk closer with God, more wisdom, financially for both myself and family.

    • Hi L. Russ,

      I started the Daniel Fast today. My church is doing it for 21 days! I also am fasting from social media, which is a sacrifice. This fast is going to help me when it comes to disciplined. I am excited, however, my body is very tired and i have this massive headache, i am guessing it is because of the fast. The flesh has to die down. However, we can do this. I too, have to play gospel at work, and I also pray quietly, so I don’t look like i am talking to myself.

        Hello Antoinette,

        Its hard but with the favor of God we will get through this fast with ease. This is my first time doing a fast, so I try to see what it is that people are doing so I can try in follow. Music, praise and worship while at home, praying every time I get in the bathroom from using it so much. LOL!! I am happy to see that there is alot of people who are hungry for the Lord the way I am. Thanks for the encouragement and best of luck on your fast.

        January 7, 2015
    • Hello L. Russ

  24. Aletra #

    Hi my name is Aletra. I just started the fast today. I’m actually really excited. My church does it every year around this time. I’ve never been really committed before but now that I’m at a different place in Christ I’m going te whole 21 days. I’m looking for God to answer 2 main prayers for me, of course along with a much deeper and intense relationship with him.

    1. Two special people in my life have been incarcerated for a while now and I’m believing that God opens the door in 2015 for them.
    2. To be able get the money to go to school so I can establish a better life for my children and I.

    I’m asking that all the believers of Jesus and all who have faith plz stand in agreement with me. Thanks so much. I’m looking to post my testimony soon.

    Hello, God has been dealing with me on fasting. I really need this Daniel Fast… What day will you be starting your fast? I want a closer relationship with HIM. I seek God for guidance, healing, financial, and deliverance. That’s for me and my children.
    Will you stand in agreement with me?

  29. Lhor Sy #

    Hi Susan, this is Lhor Sy from Philippines. It’s been three years when the last time I did the fasting. Yesterday, I started to do the Daniel fast for Spiritual awareness and awakening. I just want to renew my relationship in the Lord, no more compromises. In addition, my greatest desire is to grow my cellgroup ( I’m leading a small group of girls in our church) and to get married soon. May his favor and abundance shower upon us.

    November 12, 2014
    • Be blessed on your fast, Lhor Sy. God is good and as you draw nearer to Him . . . He will draw nearer to you.
