Daniel Fast 2022...
The “Daniel Fast” is a partial fast that is very popular among God’s Community, in which meat, wine, and other rich foods are avoided in favor of vegetables and water for typically three weeks in order to be more sensitive to God.
I want to introduce you to a “secret healing therapy” that can take your spiritual, physical and emotional health to a whole new level — it’s called the “Daniel Fast”, and it includes many foods that support healing.
Fasting is a natural discipline that can bring supernatural results. I’ve seen fasting work when nothing else will. Moses, Elijah, Esther, Ezra, Job, David, Daniel, Peter, Paul, even Jesus … fasted.
In fact, they didn’t just fast for a day or two, but both Jesus and Moses fasted for 40 days! The Bible is filled with more than 70 references to fasting, but over the last several decades fasting has disappeared from the church and is only beginning to make a resurgence today.
We fast to start the New Year on Monday, January 17th, 2022 through February 6th and is a 3 week Fast. That’s a 21 Day Fast, called the Daniel Fast. During the Fall Season, our second time of corporate fasting will align with the Jewish New Year, Yom Kippur and Sukkot, (“The Feast of Tabernacle”).

What Is a Fast?
Fasting is abstaining from something like a food, drink or entertainment for a period of time to create some type of benefit in body, mind or spirit. It means that you stop eating completely, almost completely, or eat only certain foods and drink certain drinks for a certain period of time. Most fasts usually last from 12-24 hours, but some types of fasts continue for days or even weeks at a time… referred to as the “Fasting Period”.
There are many types of fasts, which include various diets. The one we will do for the New Year is the very popular “Daniel Fast”.
What Is a Daniel Fast?
Many people wonder what did Jesus eat? Did Jesus eat meat? The Daniel fast isn’t based on what Jesus ate, but it is based on what one of Jesus’ followers consumed and this follower was not surprisingly, Daniel.
The Daniel Fast or Daniel Diet is based on the prophet Daniel’s dietary and spiritual experiences as recorded in the Book of Daniel in the Bible. It’s a partial fast that focuses very heavily on vegetables and other healthy whole foods but leaves out any animal sources of protein. Many users of this biblically-based fasting method follow it for 21 consecutive days. (2)
The “Daniel Fast” is specifically referenced in the Bible in two sections of the “Book of Daniel”.
“Daniel 1:12” which states,
“Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables [pulses] to eat and water to drink.” (3)
“Daniel 10: 2-3”, which says,
“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.” (4)
You may be familiar with the “Daniel Fast” already if you’ve read “The Maker’s Diet Revolution” by Jordan Rubin. The “Daniel Fast” only includes clean foods as described in “Leviticus 11”. (5) Unclean foods in the Bible include things like pork and shellfish.
So does the Bible say”Not to eat shrimp”? Actually, it does. “Deuteronomy 14:10”, where it states, “And whatever does not have fins and scales you shall not eat; it is unclean for you” (6). Shrimp is a type of shellfish and as such it does not contain fins or scales. There are also some fish, such as swordfish and shark, that should also be avoided if you’re following a “Biblical diet” because these sea creatures do not have both fins and scales.

Knowing clean and unclean animal proteins according to “dietary laws” in the Bible are helpful to know, but while on the “Daniel Fast” you won’t be consuming any protein from animal sources at all.
