Daniel fasting – 21 days spiritual journey with prayers and sacrifices – is the deliberate and intentional dedication to focus on God and humbling oneself in the presence of almighty God. We do this with the same fervor and urgency shown by the prophet Daniel for his people and nation. Expecting a great manifestation of God’s power upon the current pandemic, we lift our hands and hearts to the Lord for supernatural breakthroughs in our lives and in the world.
“I ate no savory food, took no meat or wine, and did not anoint myself at all until the end of the three weeks” (Daniel 10:3)
