Hello, My Name is Aniu. I'm a Pentecost/Southern Baptist Christian. I am 22 years old and though I know it's not a Daniel's fast. I'm going to start a Full (not Absolute Fast) For Ten Days starting after a Four Day preparation.

Hi! I started today and will go through to Pentecost, using the Lent Devotions.

"You will succeed, not by might or by your own strength, but by my spirit. Obstacles as great as mountains will disappear before you. You will rebuild the Temple, and as you put the last stone in place, the people will shout, "Beautiful, beautiful!"" Zechariah 4:6-7 (Good News Bible)

Hi everyone! I'm Tina and I live in Georgia, north of Atlanta. I am starting the fast tomorrow. I am really hopeful about drawing closer to the Lord during this time and seeing what God has planned for me. I have done this once before and I remember feeling just amazing. I can't wait!.

Hello. Not new to spark. I've completed a few Daniel Fasts in the past. In addition to this team, I've joined Susuan Gregory facebook group - that 21 day fast begin next Sunday, January 6. Because it is a bit of challenge to log onto facebook from work, I've joined this SPteam for additional support during those 21 days. Pulled out my book this morning and will take this week to prep and get ready.

emoticon Maybe this is the missing link. I just heard of this author today on CBS this morning. I was curious to see if there was a group on SP. I am excited to check it out. I remember hearing about spiritual weight loss, but totally forgot about this aspect of the process in becoming healthy. Rick Warren was explaining will power this morning, he hit it right on for me. "After awhile a person's will power gets tired." That is exactly what made the scale start to go back up for me. I got tired of logging my food and activity.

Hi everyone. I'm returning to this team as I felt it would be a good support source for doing my Daniel Fast that begins today, January 6th. My ladies Bible study group and I have decided to do it together so I will have support there, too. I did my first fast last February and it was a wonderful experience in many ways and I look forward to this one, too, along with enjoying fellowship with others on the team.

Hi everyone,

My name is Judy and I am new to this team but not Spark. I recently learned about the Daniel Fast, looked it up online, bought the book and decided to do a search to see if Spark had a team. I was pleasantly surprised to see there is a team and immediately joined!

I will be starting my 21 day fast tomorrow, November 1st. I've never done something like this before so it will be a learning experience for sure! It's hard to put into words the different things I will be praying about during this time but thankfully HE hears me and can sort out my thoughts and make sense of me! :-)

Prayers would be appreciated. I look forward to being a part of this team.

Blessings,
Judy

Hi my name is Audrey. I am new to the Daniel fast team. But I have been with spark people since February 2010 and successfully lost some weight with God's help. God lead me to this website when I saw a pretty bright orange book at the store. I have been fasting for a long time with my church or personal reason 40day fast or sometimes 21 days.... yes sometimes it is hard. I would love to join with all you doing Daniel fasting. I want to start Next Monday :-)
I will be praying daily for everybody on Daniel fast! I am prayer intercessor, has been doing about 5 years I love it especially when God answer the prayer His Way! God is awesome!
Thanks and be bless!

Intercessory and Warfare prayers are part of my Ministry about 9 years. God miraculous has answer prayers. I know I served a Living God that want to do mighty things in our lives. Fasting often. Like to read Bible, read other inspiration books,

Glad to have you on board, Trimama!

Our church is fasting in preparation for a church revival in June 17th. I am fasting from unhealthy food, like sweets and fried foods. I have done the Daniel Fast a couple of times with amazing blessings! I was hired for my current job when I was on my last fast. It is a time to draw closer to the Lord and listen to His voice. I make sure that I spend time with the Lord in the morning before work and starting my day. The Lord is giving me peace as I read the bible and apply it.

Hi everyone! God is sooo Awesome! I've been doing the Daniel Fast, off and on, for over a year. I've also been on Spark for over a year and I'm so happy to have found this team. I just started another Daniel Fast this past Sunday, May 8th at sundown and I'm looking forward to developing a deeper relationship with my Lord and Savior. Please keep me and my family in prayer. Also, who else is doing the fast at this time?


Plan:
Move my body (15 mins per day, 5 days per week)
Eat my freggies (2 to 4 svgs per day)
Drink my H2O (64 oz per day)

Cheery greetings in Jesus name!
I recomitted to Sparkpeople a few weeks ago and while it's going well, I'd like to step things up a notch in regards to more weight loss and healthier eating. Making and accomplishing goals in all areas of my life (especially spiritual)has become very important to me this year and when I found this team I thought, "Alright! This could be the answer to my prayers!" So, here I am. I'm excited to check out the Daniel Fast and then actually DO it once I've done some preliminary praying and prepping.

Blessings,
Debbers

Hello! I am on Day 2 of my fast. I joined SparkPeople last year. Lost 15 pounds the first half of the year and then almost gained all of it back the last half of the year. :( Realized over the last several weeks that I have really spent too much time thinking about food and my weight. I wanted to start the Daniel Fast to get my attention and focus back on the one true God. I feel the other things in my life will start to fall in place once I put God back in His rightful place in my life!

Good luck to all! I pray each of you will be blessed on this journey!

I no longer have the cravings for the caffeine or the sweets! and a very nice little perk, i lost 4 pounds last week! :) I'm so very glad I found this team to go on the journey! emoticon

Good Day All!

New to the team, but not Spark! I am currently cleansing (on Day 2 of 10). Something I started last January to get refocused. Anywhoo, my church will be fasting beginning February 26. I know I'm early, but I thought I would look for spark team now and do a litte research so that I'm prepared for our corporate fast in February.

I pray you are all doing well.

blessings,
Sookie

Shalom!!

I could not believe it when i read and saw the team here. The Lord has been compelling me to fast, and i had surgery two weeks ago and was really scared about fasting. and then yesterday, HE reminded me about a Daniel Fast and as i browsed through my feed, one of my friends had commented on PAMAPPLE's blog about a Daniel Fast. I am sure that this is what I need right now, and i bless Him for leading me to the team.

I am almost 32, wife to 1 wonderful man and mother to 2 preschoolers. I am just excited to be on the team!!!

Blessings!!!

p.s. I am starting my fast tomorrow 3rd Jan.

Welcome to the team!! I'm so glad you joined us!! I'm looking forward to hearing about how everyone is doing on the fast. I am planning on starting a Daniel fast Jan. 3rd, too. Jan 3 rd i will start a new job ( I got the job while praying and fasting during the advent season) and Jan 4th I will have a lesion removed from my cervix and will be sent in for a biopsy. I am expecting a wonderful time of fellowship and watching God's miraculous power work in our lives!!

First off.....WELCOME to the Team!!! Glad to have you join. I seen Free Chapel is starting later this time. Instead of the first Sunday in January it's the second Sunday. Like you I was sensing January 3rd. I will be doing a COMPLETE Fast for the first days. Today I've been sensing God has been presenting the number 5 to me. So for sure I will do the complete fast January 3-7. Then at that time I know God will show me the rest.

I just heard on a Christian talk show someone say, the number 5 means Grace. So I find that interesting!!! Looking forward in you joining me and whoever else wishes to come. Also, looking forward in getting to know you.

Blessings to all! Praise be to GOD for finding this team as I prayerfully prepare for Daniel fast Jan 3 through ??? Through Christ I was successful last January, and expectantly anticipate what Christ can do in and through my life as I focus on "more of Him, less of me". I followed the dates of Free Chapel (Jetezen Franklin's church) last year, but God's placed the third as my start date this year. Whether I break it after 21 days or finish with Free Chapel will be up to HIM. I thank each of you for sharing your walk, and look forward to bringing HIM glory with each of you.

Hello all, so glad to find this team. My family is going to be doing the Daniel fast starting January 1 for 40 days. I have been fasting for 1 and 2 days on and off for the past year, with complete fasts.

I was reading on Jetezen Franklin's site the idea of giving the firstfruits of your year to God and really liked it, I was familiar with the Daniel fast for a few months before that. I decided that if a tithe of money is 10%, my fast should be as well. And then since 36.5 days is so close to 40 my husband and I decided to follow Jesus' example and go for 40 days. Our children will be doing this with us simply because I can't make two meals. I'm not going to ask them to follow it if we are at church potluck or they are at their grandparents or friends houses. But when they are home with me, which we homeschool so more time than not they are home with me, they'll follow the dietary restrictions as well.

I am so nervous about this and I hate that I am. I don't count and recount my tithe, we just willingly and gladly give it over to God. This shows me what an idol food is for me that I'm so nervous about the fast. I'm mostly nervous about not knowing what to make or recipes.

I spent a few minutes today cleaning out part of our pantry, we will be performing a passover-type of cleaning the yeast from the corners and getting rid of any non-allowed food only because I don't trust myself.

I think this will be easier for my husband, number one because he can just make up his mind and then follow it, he doesn't let his emotions dictate his eating habits. Number two he has eaten similar to this last year, cut out all white sugar and flour and dairy. He followed that way of eating for several months but stopped last summer.

I have a litany of things I'll be praying for during this fast, healed relationships, self-control, self-denial, self-restraint, financial healing.

I'm open to any and all suggestions you have, we won't be using any soy or tofu products. Looking forward to getting to know many of you better.

First off WElCOME!!! Dawn, that might be do able for me. If your going to start on December 1-21 I could do the modified Daniel Fast that's in the Daniel Fast Book. A true Daniel Fast is veggies, fruit, and water. As it says in the Bible. I can't remember the woman's name that wrote the book. I have the book. I will re read it. I'd be happy to do it with you!

Hello, my name is Dawn. I had heard the name Daniel Fast but had no idea what it was all about. Then I bought the book yesterday and have been glancing through it and am excited about following it. I will be reading the book over the next few days and then will stock the kitchen and prepare in general to start it. I am hoping to start on December 1st. If anyone will be starting then, I would be grateful to have a buddy to share the experience with and to hold me accountable.

Awaiting your response,

Hi my name is Tammy. I heard about the Daniel Fast from a co-worker. When I studied Daniel in the spring with my husband I always thought in the back of my head, I wish I could eat like Daniel. Well, today is day 12 of my first Daniel Fast. While I'm using this fast to grow in my relationship with Christ, I'm feeling the rewards of eating plant-based foods - more energy, feel better generally, my skin looks better, I've lost 7 pounds so far.

I'm excited to see a group out here. I'm hoping to meet some new friends, receive encouragement and be an encouragement to others. Thanks.

I am new here. Not new to fasting. I'm interested in this Daniel Fast. I've done the Daniel Fast before, it was a juice fast of fruits and veggies. Now I'm seeing your having a 21 day fast of mostly plant based. Such as fruits, veggies, seeds, etc.... I would like to get the foods to eat and not eat. It would be nice to have a buddy to do this with. I'd like to get started on this soon. Since my eating is out of control. I need to get off these sugars and white flour. Looking forward in hearing from you.

Hi! My name is Pam and I am spreading the word around to some Christian spark teams about this group. I have fasted before following Daniel's diet based on fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds in a spiritual attempt to gain better health and grow closer to God. During that time, I felt very energetic, required less sleep, and even thought more clearly. Of course, I lost weight but that wasn't my intention at that time.

I have been wanting to start fasting again but never carried it out, but now that this group has formed, am excited to start a spiritual fasting journey along with other sparkers. I just bought The Daniel Fast and plan to start reading it tomorrow. I'm looking forward to hearing from other team member's adventures, and experiencing the presence and leading of God.

This is my first time fasting, and it is also my first time leading a Spark Team. So I'm a newbie all around.

My name is Reina and I am a married, full time working mother of a 3 year old (DJ). I am a middle school math teacher, and I know that this (the beginning of the summer) is the perfect time for me to participate in the Daniel Fast.

A couple of months ago, before I joined SP, I felt convicted to fast one weekend, eating only veggies and fruits. I didn't really focus intently on prayer or meditation. I enjoyed the physical benefits of the fast and my ego quickly got in the way. I attempted to extend the eating changes into my work week and continued to work out intensely. My body rejected it.

After reading through the Daniel Fast by Susan Gregory I see that my motivation at the time would not have allowed me to be successful. I am currently in the "Plan" and "Prepare" stages of the fast.

I searched SP for a team dedicated to the Daniel Fast but found none. I found an archived discussion and there were several mentions of starting such a team, but I guess no one went through with it.

I recently fell off "the wagon" and I've been struggling to get my momentum and motivation back. Hopefully others like me - trying to treat their body as a temple of the Holy Spirit - will join the team so we can lift one another up.

Please feel free to introduce yourself in response to this message, or start your own topic to do so.
