In this sermon we explore Daniel’s resolve to pray. Prayer was not a last resort, nor was it in-action in Daniel’s mind. He practiced it as naturally as he did breathing. Do we do this in America today when we face challenges? In this sermon we will explore the importance of taking all of our feelings of fear, anger and heartbreak to God. We will also examine what “control” we really have over the circumstances that surround us. We will find, just as Daniel did, that that sense of control is only an illusion.
10 When Daniel knew that the document had been signed, he went to his house where he had windows in his upper chamber open toward Jerusalem. He got down on his knees three times a day and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as he had done previously.
