Our 21-day Daniel Fast starts Sunday, March 11, and continues until Easter morning. These three weeks of prayer, fasting and repentance are a powerful opportunity to exercise personal discipline while growing stronger in your prayer life with God — alongside your Generations family!

The Daniel Fast is known as a "partial fast" and comes from Daniel 1:12 and Daniel 10:2-3. The following is a list of foods that are eaten or avoided during the Daniel Fast ("No meats or sweets"). You can also click here for an printable PDF.
