What is the Fast of Daniel?

The Fast of Daniel is based on the fast described in the Daniel chapter 10, in the Bible. During 21 days, Daniel decided to fast in order to find favor, wisdom, and understanding from God.

Now-a-days, among the list of things which get in the way of our relationship with God, distractions are more than present–and they come in all forms of entertainment and secular information which bombard us constantly. The Lord Jesus would say “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” (Matthew 13:9) The purpose of the Fast of Daniel is exactly this: to open our ears to the voice of God.


The purpose of daily tasks

I want to invite you to start a purpose with me during this fast. It will help you get the most out of these 21 days for the benefit of every area of your life.

Every day I will post five tasks here, they will touch the five areas of your life: spirituality, health, relationships, finances, and personal growth. (These are the same tasks that are in the Portuguese blog.)

Why take part in this purpose?

Just as fasting is not simply to stop eating, the Fast of Daniel is not simply for you to stop absorbing secular information or entertainment. The fast requires abstinence but also requires attitudes which will help you reach your objectives.

The objective of the Fast of Daniel is to strengthen your life in general.


How to participate?

Click on the links below to see the tasks up to today. They will be posted here daily. They will be in a PDF format, so you can download them to your computer or print them out and take them wherever you go. Make sure to always read the daily instructions before you begin.

A friend

What about inviting a friend (or several) to participate in this purpose with you? Then you can motivate each other so that you complete the tasks.


Take a couple of minutes to leave a couple of lines and tell us all about your experience doing the daily tasks. This will help you reflect on what you learned and will help other participants when they read your victories and challenges in completing the tasks. So comment! Feel free to give ideas and motivate others as well.

    Day 4 of the fast of Daniel: Was meditating on John 4 the whole chapter. Here Jesus was showing how important our work/ mission to win souls for our God is,the disciples came to him with food but Jesus did not eat the food saying that His food was to do the will of the one who sent him, he was putting aside his earthly needs for the heavenly to be priority. The 21 days of Daniel is about the same thing to set aside our desires for a relationship with our Lord.

    #GODLLYWOODCHALLENGE 17. (2nd week of 21 days). It certainly has been a blessing doing these tasks, it has helped me to realise a lot of things in all aspect of my life; it has helped me to be closer to God, to my friends, to my Family, to have a vision and determination to go ahead with my plans, to understand that order and discipline are part of the character of those who are of God. and I must say that each day I couldn’t wait for the new task to start doing them.

    The tasks made me to think and not just think but take actions,they made me aware of how much effort i need to invest in my self and stop monitoring my husband s mistakes and weaknesses.
    i did not excise,i ate whatever i can afford,water i would only drink if i am thirsty,i have hard time with spelling and excel,i misuse money and time,never rest in short the tasks were ment for me.

    Thank you so much now i know what to do.
