DANIEL FAST

Fast Guidelines
Fast Calendar

Endtime United Ministries will honor God in this season of anticipation through a corporate fast.  This document provides you with information that you need to know in order to understand and be successful with the Daniel fast.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either Pastor Wilson or AP Staley. 

Who Is Taking Part in the Daniel Fast?

Every member of Endtime will take part in this fast.  Those that do not have experience with fasting can modify the times of the fast so you will be successful, but those that have fasted before should start and complete this fast as mentioned below.

When and For How Long Are We Fasting?

The Daniel Fast will begin on Sunday, July 19, 2020 at 6:00 PM and will conclude on Saturday, August 8, 2020 at 6:00 PM.  The fast should be followed for 24 hours, meaning there are no breaks in the fast from the start time to the end time.

What is our Fast Focus?

2 Chronicles 7:13 – 15 gives us insight into the Will of God in the midst of this pandemic.  A great deal of conversation is taking place in the political, religious, and ethical landscapes of society, but one conversation that has not dominated the news cycle is the power of humility.  If we attune our ears to the frequency of God, and rebuke the sounds that are reverberating in our world that cause confusion, division, and pride, we will see that God alone has the authority to shut up the heavens, to send plague, and to allow the locusts to devour the land.  When this happens, however, there is a response from the children of God that garners His attention—humble ourselves and pray, seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways.  Therefore, our focus for this fast will be humility.  Humility will allow us to develop a sensitivity to the voice of God. 

Why Should I Fast? 

Fasting brings you into a deeper, more intimate, and more powerful relationship with God.  The spirit in which you fast is more important than the fasting itself.  Just abstaining from certain foods without prayer and consecrating your lifestyle to God is a diet, not a fast.  Because of this, the objective of fasting is to discipline the flesh so you can become more sensitive to the Spirit of God.  Fasting, therefore, is a personal commitment to God, forming a covenant with Him in which you make it clear that you desire His will more than you desire to please the flesh. 

What is Fasting?

Fasting is—

  • Unto the Lord
  • Helpful to us in spiritual warfare and intercession
  • Purging the soul and body
  • Spiritual house cleaning
  • Training in self-denial and self-discipline
  • Abstaining from anything that hinders your fellowship or communion with God

Fasting also allows us to—

  • Receive God’s anointing, which destroys the yoke of bondage in our lives
  • Achieve a life of dedication to the things of God
  • Break the powers of sin and darkness in our lives
  • Lift burdens and oppressions
  • Break generational, familial, and environmental curses
  • Become more disciplined in our daily lives
  • Establish a routine of prayer and consecration unto God
  • Overcome the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life

The Daniel Fast was powerful because of Daniel’s rejection of the customs and traditions of the world, and a commitment to the voice and direction of God.  Daniel was committed to a life against wine and foods offered up to idols.  It was in Daniel’s refusal of the “king’s table” where he received access to “the table of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!”
