Text: Daniel 10

I am so glad you have decided to participate in this year’s fasting and personal devotion.

The 21-Day Fast is the model set out by Daniel in the book of Daniel 10:2-3 “In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.”

A Daniel fast is eating only fruits and vegetables (please, see i and ii below) for (the) a certain length of time (in this case 21days) and abstaining from meat products and sea foods.

The Daniel Fast involves a spiritual commitment to God. “Daniel proposed in his heart that he would not defile himself” (Daniel 1:8).

Please, note these:

  1. Be specific in your prayer; you should come to God with specific prayer request(s)
  2. Pray three times a day – Morning: between 5am & 8am, Afternoon: between 12pm & 3pm and Night: between 9pm & 12am. There are suggested prayer points for each session every day, for the 21 days as a guide. You can then add your own prayers in each session.
  3. You can break your fast by 12pm, 3pm, 6pm or 9pm. Please, choose one of these patterns.

*Important Note: Fasting requires reasonable precautions. If you have any health concerns, please consult your physician, pastor or leader prior to beginning your fast, especially if you are taking any medication, have a chronic condition, or are pregnant or nursing a baby.
