Our Scripture reading today is Daniel 6:7-10.
Verse 10, "Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime."
There is a certain boldness that we see in Daniel that could only come through a close walk with the God of Heaven. He did not go into hiding so no one would see him praying. Daniel had been spending time with God before this law was signed by the king. It is my opinion that the prayer is Verse 10 of Daniel 6 is not a 911 prayer. It was not from a spirit of panic or worry. He went about his normal prayer routine.
The challenge presented to us today is do we have a prayer life already established? As Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:17, do we "pray without ceasing"? Could there ever come a time in our life when we would allow someone or something to keep us from praying? Like assembling together with other believers, is prayer essential to you? While there is nothing wrong with praying to God in times of emergency, we must have time throughout the day when we commune with Him. It would be wise for each of us to reevaluate our prayer life and make changes where necessary.
