Discovering Your Purpose | Day 6 | Three Prayers from the Life of Daniel Part 2

Updated: Jan 25

Today is day two of praying through “Nine Lessons from Daniel’s Prayer Life.” We are endeavoring to discover our purpose. Prayer is a key part of this endeavor. Today we will pray and meditate through the second three lessons.


1. Daniel’s Prayer Life was Important


· Read Daniel 6:7-11


· Daniel’s prayer life was not affected by his circumstances. He valued it more than even his own life. He didn’t only pray because trouble was coming, he prayed because it was already an important part of his life that he wouldn’t forsake.


2. Daniel Had No Barriers


· Daniel 6:10- Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.


· Just as Daniel prayed with the windows wide open, he didn’t have any barrier in his heart between him and God. No walls, no grudges, no roadblocks. Simply open access to the father.


3. Daniel was Humble


· Daniel 6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.


· Daniel 9:3 Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes.


· Daniel bowed himself representing humanity before God. He also demonstrated humility when he prayed with fasting, sackcloth and ashes. He did not think of himself as a great man of God who could do no wrong. He knew his dependence must remain on God.
