Daniel 9:4-19  "Plea for Mercy"

Daniel was a man of prayer.  It was a vital part of his life.  Daniel displays for us a life that is very balanced.  He was a man committed to the Word of God and to prayer.  What he learns from the Word gave him focus in his prayer life.  One way this prayer encourages me is the fact to Daniel, as it should be to me, was in knowing his God.  The eternal God of creation wants to hear Daniel's prayer.  He was willing to listen.  This helps me remember that prayer is not just a religious exercise but something truly uplifting and a joy to do.  If you find our prayer life boring and routine, a place we all have been, let Daniel encourage you so your praying becomes a joy and not a duty.
