 Partial Fast
A Partial Fast – This type of fast generally refers to omitting a specific meal from your diet or refraining from certain types of foods. Daniel 10:2-3 says, “At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.” In Daniel 1:12, they restricted their diet to vegetables and water: “Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink.” – See more at: http://www.allabout

done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.'” It is recommended that this type of fast be done with extreme caution and not for extended periods of time. – See more at: http://www.allabout

Regular Fast
 
Traditionally, a regular fast means refraining from eating all food. Most people still drink water or juice during a regular fast. When Jesus fasted in the desert, the Bible says, “After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.” This verse does not mention Jesus being thirsty. – See more at: http://www.allaboutpray

The Daniel Fast
During the Daniel Fast you will not consume any sugar or sweeteners of any kind, nor will you have any caffeine or artificial chemicals. 
 
Full Fast
A Full Fast – These fasts are complete – no food and no drink. Acts 9:9 describes when Paul went on a full fast for three days following his encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus: “For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.” Esther also called for this type of fast in Esther 4:15-16: “Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: ‘Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three
days, night or day. I and my maids will fast as you do. When this is
When you have your purpose, you can gather study materials to help you in this part of your faith journey. You can find scriptures for your meditation and prayer. And you can search out God’s promises to use for your focused study.
Right now you are at a time when you can choose to draw near to your loving Father by beginning the New Year with a period of extended prayer and fasting. Open your heart to the Lord and let Him fill you. Receive His love. Get to know Him better. And tuck yourself under His protective wing so He can lead and direct your life, a life that can be a bright and shining example for others to see and to bring Him glory.
-Promise
James 4:8 teaches us a powerful truth and declares one of God’s promises, Come close to God, and God will come close to you.” Oh, how sweet that promise is. But it’s also conditional. Our God is always available. He is always there. And our part is to come close to Him. We are to choose to be near Him. To open our hearts to Him and give Him the time so He can indeed come close to us.
-Purpose
Now is also the time to determine the purpose for your fast. What challenges are you experiencing? In what areas of your life do you need the Lord’s wisdom and direction? Are there specific lessons you want to learn or habits you either want to break or perhaps new disciplines you want as part of your daily life. The New Year and fasting are a perfect time to embark on changes and as a Christian you have the power of God working in you to help.
-Prepare –
Your successful fast begins before the first day. Preparing your spirit, soul and body for the experience is key to a fulfilling time. Start even now to pray about the fast and ask the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you. Clear your calendar of as many appointments as you can and begin to plan for quiet time with your Lord and His Word. And begin to prepare your body for the fast by tapering off caffeine and sugar so you will be ready and avoid what can be very painful withdrawals.
– Prayer and Fasting Defined –
A Definition Prayer and fasting is defined as voluntarily going without food in order to focus on prayer and fellowship with God. Prayer and fasting often go hand in hand, but this is not always the case. You can pray without fasting, and fast without prayer. It is when these two activities are combined and dedicated to God’s glory that they reach their full effectiveness. Having a dedicated time of prayer and fasting is not a way of manipulating God into doing what you desire. Rather, it is simply forcing yourself to focus and rely on God for the strength, provision, and wisdom you need – See more at: http://www.allaboutprayer.org/prayer-and-fasting.htm#sthash.An2UNffS.dpuf
 
 “And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” Matthew 6:16-18 ESV

Daniel Fast Food List

“People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives. Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.

Proverbs 16:2-3 NLT

Ending a Fast
Introduction
It is best to break a fast by eating fruit, broth, or a light salad, gradually adding other foods day by day depending upon the length of the fast.
Prayer
Father, in the name of Jesus, You are my Light and my Salvation; whom shall I fear? You are the Strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Father, You have given me the desires of my heart. You have heard and answered my prayers. To You be the glory! Great things You have done!
I rest in You, awaiting the manifestation of all that I required and inquired of You.
I thank You for giving me Your strength to face each day full of sap [of spiritual vitality]. Today I break this fast as You have directed. I thank You for this food because it is consecrated by Your Word and prayer In Jesus’ name, amen.
