The Daniel Fast in Scripture

Daniel’s diet traverses the centuries between the days of the Bible and modern-day life.

The book of Daniel will be our guide during this fast.

In Daniel 1:12 describes what this fast existed of which lasted ten days

In Daniel 2 Daniel sought the prayers of his three friends.

In Daniel 6 we learn that Daniel prayer three times a day.

In Daniel 10:2 a fast of three weeks is recorded.

Berean SDA ‘Daniel Fast Observance’

We will observe this fast for three weeks.

It provides an opportunity to spend quality time with God, praying 3 times a day

It provides opportunity to build relationships. Like Daniel, we will find three friends to pray with and for us.

It will teach us biblical principles of natural health and healing.

It defines how God has created specific nutrients in our foods that have a profound impact on our health. 

It explains the important connection between Body, Mind (emotions) and Spirit in relation to our health and longevity.

Don’t forget to “Trust in God” throughout your fasting experience.

The Daniel Fast and Your Relationship to God   

  1. Avoid distractions. This is a sacred time between you and God, so avoid secular television and radio programs.
  2. Start the diet by focusing on your faith. Worship God through sacrifice and love Him more than His gifts.
  3. Your days should be filled with unselfish prayer. During the fast, increase the frequency of your daily prayer time by a factor of 3 or more.
  4. Build your relationships. Choose three members to pray with at least once a day.
  5. Reserve time with God during the day by studying the Bible.
  6. Seek the Lord diligently for the answers to your prayer
  7. Ask for God’s guidance in your life.

Things to consider while fasting…

Make your meals somewhat lighter for a few days leading up to your fast. It's a good idea to especially avoid animal fats and sweets.

Carefully read food labels. Foods often contain hidden ingredients.
