Scripture

Daniel 10

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why caused the heavenly messenger appear to Daniel (11-12)? What had detained the heavenly messenger and what enabled him to finally come to Daniel (13)? For what purpose had he come (14,19-21)?

Application

Do I purpose to understand the will of God and humble myself before Him? Do I continue in prayer, even when the answer is delayed? Do I derive my strength from God’s Word and communing with Him in prayer?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Thank You for the godly example of Your servant Daniel, who purposed to understand Your will and humbled himself before You in prayer. May I follow his example, continuing in prayer even when the answer is delayed for reasons far beyond my understanding and ability to control. May I wait on You and draw my strength from Your Word and communing with You in prayer. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries:

  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus, Jack)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover
  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Darrell & Fralina Leatham

Ministry:

  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing

CLF:

  • Pray that we would be a church that is dedicated to the breaking of bread, both in the sense of being devoted to observing the Lord’s Supper, and in meeting together for meals to fellowship, to deepen bonds, to heal offenses, and to end disputes.
