Daniel Fasting

At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.

Daniel 10:2-3 NIV

The Daniel Fast as the passage above indicates is a partial fast. We are aware that people approach it differently. Some people decide to have all three meals in a day whilst others may decide to skip meals or have nothing at all on some days.
We encourage you to participate at the level that you are able. Please keep in mind the main aim of this fast is to give ourselves to seek the Lord. Those of you who have specific health issues please be wise during the fast.

More information about the Daniel Fast Method
The Daniel Fast is a method of fasting used by hundreds of thousands of Christians throughout the world. The fast is based on the fasting experiences of the prophet Daniel along with standard Jewish fasting principles.

The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, meaning that some foods are eaten and others are restricted. 

Please only consider this style of fasting if you are medically well enough too or disordered eating is not an internal challenge for you.
