The Daniel Fast

is a method of spiritual fasting based on the prophet Daniel's experience fasting according to the book of Daniel in the Bible. NMBC will observe the month of January 2020 as a time of fasting and renewal.  

We will fast from sundown on Wednesday, January 6, 2020 - sundown on Wednesday, January 27, 2020.  You may eat any combination of the items under "Foods to Enjoy", on the image to the right, between 6am-6pm.  

 Utilize the Book of Psalms reading at least one chapter a day to aid in your prayer practice:  
Helpful hint.  Prayer is essential during this season of fasting. You must commit to fervent prayer each day of the fast.  The set times for prayer are at least the first 10-mins of every other hour during the fast cycle and prior to the conclusion of your day (6, 8, 10, 12, 2, 4, 6, and the end of the day).  Fasting without PRAYER is nothing more than a diet



There are two passages in specific that the Daniel Fast is based on: 

1.   "Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink." Daniel 1:12

2.   "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." Daniel 10: 2-3
