Prevailing Prayer


“Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard.”
-DANIEL 10:12

Daniel prevailed over Earth because he was of Heaven. Daniel prevailed over Darkness because he was of the Light. Daniel prevailed over Death because he had Life. Daniel was delivered from the lion’s den, and lived to continue his ministry of prayer. After such an ordeal we might expect him to go ahead and retire, to quietly settle down, and relax a little bit. Certainly he has earned a vacation. But shortly thereafter we find him battling in the spirit for twenty-one days while he waited for yet another answer to be delivered from Heaven. Can there be any doubt as to the outcome?

Daniel does not stop. This is what it means to overcome. You can never coast, you can never let down your guard, you can never just let things slide for a day or two. Overcoming is not a once in awhile thing, it is an all-the-time thing. Settle that within yourself right now.

    I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday!
    The story and testimony of Daniel: great encouragement for when we face (what we think is) adversity.
    As Children of God, we WILL and DO go through trials…Learning from these trials and truly giving our ALL to the glory for the Kingdom of God, can bring the highest forms of Praising God to our mortal hearts!
    My prayer is for our realizations to become solid as we journey with our heavenly Father!
