The fast, which is similar to a short-term cleansing diet, is inspired by the foods described in the book of Daniel that the Old Testament prophet exclusively ate.
“Entering into a period of extended prayer and fasting is like pushing the ‘pause button’ on life so you can draw nearer to God,” the Daniel Fast website states. “The Holy Spirit joins you in this experience as you open your heart to receive from the Lord.”
“Learn what God’s Word teaches about health and your wellness,” the website continues. “And begin weaning yourself off unhealthy goods. Break poor eating habits. And take the first steps of developing your lifestyle of health.”
