Daniel and his friends had a decision to make. Remain true to their God or become a part of a culture who worshipped idols. You see they’d been taken captive. It might have seemed as if their God had turned His back on them. They came from good families. They were educated. They could work the system and rise in prestige even in a different country. Could they turn their backs on God, or would they die for their faith? However, they realized that if they turned their backs on God, their lives were over anyway. All of them were tested throughout their lives. Each time they were tested, proved the God they worshipped was the true and living God of the universe.
One of the ways they remained true was to pray for guidance and protection. It was not possible for them to do anything in their own power. Only God could keep them safe in a fiery furnace. Only God could protect Daniel in the lion’s den. Prayer was the focal point. Surrendered hearts to the will of God triumphed each time.
We are moving into a time of prayer for our city and the country. The first opportunity is called “Seek God for the City”. A booklet helps us focus on a particular theme each day for 40 days leading up to Palm Sunday.
We live in troubled times in our own country. We, as Christians, are finding ourselves in a culture that does not honor God as it used to. We must gird ourselves with prayer and humble our hearts, honoring God even when it’s not popular.
