THE DANIEL FAST 2023

Join us for our corporate 2023 Daniel Fast! 
January 8-28, 2023

Read below for more information.

  • What's the Daniel Fast?
    The Daniel Fast is a biblically-based partial fast based on two accounts of the prophet Daniel's fasting experiences (see Daniel 1 & 10) and typical Jewish fasting principles. The Daniel Fast eating plan is similar to a vegan diet with additional restrictions. See the Daniel Fast food list at www.daniel-fast.com for a more complete outline of foods to include and foods to avoid. You can also visit www.liccmn.org/danielfast2023 for more information!
  • When is LICC's corporate Daniel Fast?
    Sunday, January 8 to January 28, 2023.
  • Why are we doing a fast?
    A fast is a declaration of our sober intention of wanting God's kingdom to be established through us, and of us confessing that we cannot do it on our own - we need God. We fast to change things in the spirit, to break off strongholds, and for the Spirit of God to have His way among us. We want to begin this year seeking God, praying for ourselves and our walk with God, our families, church, leaders, our community, and our nation. We want God's will to be done through our lives, families, and church. It begins with denying ourselves and seeking God.
  • What can I pray for during the fast?
