Daniel teaches us to pray

29 May 2016  John Reid shares what Daniel teaches about how we should pray – Daniel 9: 1 – 21

There are many parallels between the Jews in exile in Daniel’s time and our church today. We are captive to the forces of evil, we live lives in guilt and shame, and are often scorned by society.

Daniel’s prayer shows us how we should pray:

Start with the scripture – the word of God is the anchor for our lives.

Recognize that when God makes a covenant with His people He delivers – He is faithful!

We need to confess our sins and seek God’s forgiveness.

Give glory and honour to God. We can trust Him with our future.
