Heavenly Father, as I reflect on Daniel and his three friends, who refused to be brainwashed by the Babylonian culture into which they were forced, I see how Satan's plan continues to be the indoctrination of young people with worldly principles and ungodly practices. Protect the hearts and minds of children and students, especially those from Christian families and those that know the Lord as Saviour. Give them courage to stand fast in the evil day and help each one to discover Your strength is sufficient in every eventuality of life. Thank You that You are my God and may I never stray from the path of peace - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, it is amazing and wonderful to realise that You know the end from the beginning and that from the foundation of the world; You purposed in Your heart to redeem Your fallen race and return the sceptre of power to humanity - through the Person and Work of Your only begotten Son. Thank You that no evil weapon nor nefarious plan formed against us will triumph, for Jesus won the victory over every enemy of our soul - 2000 years ago on a wooden cross, when He shed His lifeblood to pay the price for the sin of the whole world - including MY sin. Thank You that You have revealed Your purpose and plan through the prophetic writings of Daniel and other holy men of God and that every kingdom of this evil world system will soon be supernaturally crushed by Christ - and His kingdom will never end. Open the eyes of those who have been blinded by the god of this world and bring many into Your kingdom, we pray, before it is too late. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing book of Daniel; the lessons we learn of the dangers of human pride; the folly of a double-minded man and that wisdom and understanding comes from You alone. Thank You for the reassuring knowledge that You are in control of every area of our lives. We can truly confess with our whole heart, through the words that Nebuchadnezzar proclaimed, 'how great are Your signs and how mighty are Your wonders! Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and You dominion is from generation to generation". Thank You that You are my God and my Saviour, for in You I have placed my trust. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how amazing and gracious that You would tell us the end from the beginning. Thank You that You loved Your fallen creation so much, that You would give Your only begotten Son, to suffer, so cruelly on the cross, to save humanity from their sin - such that whosoever believes on HIM would not perish but receive everlasting life. Thank You that my sin was judged at the cross. We pray that many who are blinded by Satan, the deceiving god of this age, would have their eyes open to the truth of the glorious gospel of grace, and be saved by faith. We ask this in Jesus precious name, AMEN.
Loving heavenly Father, we have sinned against You in thought word and deed and have not loved You as we ought. For the sake of Your holy name forgive us and refresh our hearts as we ready ourselves for Your soon return, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, we praise and thank You for the wonderful example of Daniel, who was a man of prayer who knew the Scriptures, trusted Your Word, prayed into Your will and translated the needs of his fellow men into humble confession and godly intercession. I pray that I may be one that studies to show myself approved unto God.. come to a deeper understanding of Your perfect character and be guided by the Holy Spirit to pray into Your will - to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for revealing to us Your plans and purposes for both the Church, which is You Body and also for Your chosen people, Israel. Help us not to become so consumed with the letter of the prophetic Scriptures that we fail to recognize that One about Whom all Scripture speak and through Whom all prophecy will finally be fulfilled. Thank You Father for all that Jesus achieved through His death and resurrection. Thank You that He is interceeding for each of us in heavenly places and thank You for the many promises that are ours by grace through faith in HIM - to Whom be all praise and glory, for ever and ever, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You have told us the end from the beginning and that despite Israel rejecting and crucifying their God and Saviour, You have not finished with that nation, and Your plans and purposes will be finally and fully carried out as recorded in Holy Writ. Help me to understand all that You would have me to learn about the end times in which we live. As we draw ever closer the final chapter in Your plan of redemption, may I be ready for the soon return of Christ, to take His Church to be with Himself, forever. Thank You Father, that the enemy is unable to thwart Your eternal redemptive plan, and that Israel will one day call out to Jesus for salvation – and thank You that He will return, as foretold by Scripture to set up His kingdom on earth. We praise You that Your unconditional promises to Abraham, Isaac, Israel and David stand fast for ever, and that Your promises to the Body of Christ are YES and AMEN in Christ Jesus our Lord – in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing prophecy in the book of Daniel and for telling us what is shortly to take place, so that we can put our house in order and tell others the truth of the glorious gospel of grace - while there is still time. Thank You that I have been saved by grace through faith, and have an assurance that I have an inheritance, reserved for me in heaven. But Lord. there are many who do not know the glorious truth that Christ died for their sins and rose again, to save all who would believe in Him.. for the forgiveness of their sin. Give me an evangelistic heart, so that I may proclaim the gospel of grace - and warn the unsaved.. that today is the day of salvation. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the Word of God and the truth it contains. Thank You that You have told us the end from the beginning. Keep us from the deceptive lies of wicked people and help us to discern false doctrines of apostate teachers. Save Your people Israel we pray.. and together with the Holy Spirit of God, may all who trust in Christ as Saviour cry out: Maranatha : Come Lord Jesus, for it is in His name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing insights we receive from the prophetic book of Daniel and his revelations into the coming time of Jacob's Trouble, when Michael will stand up to protect the little nation of Israel, from the hands of the satanic Antichrist, whose desire is to exterminate Your chosen people, so that they may not call on the name of the Lord for salvation - and be saved. Thank You that Your plans and purposes for both Israel and the Church will be fulfilled at Your appointed time, and in Your appointed way. Thank You - and it is in Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for all we can learn from the book of Daniel about the end times and the resurrection of the dead. Thank You that I have been saved by grace, through faith in Christ and that every member of the human race has the free-will to trust in Jesus for the forgiveness of sins or to reject His offer of salvation. Thank You that anyone can be declared righteous - by faith, and that Jesus is the resurrection and the life for He is the First-fruit from the dead. Protect Your people, Israel we pray, and lift the partial blindness that has for so many centuries blinded Jewish men and women to the truth of the glorious gospel of grace in Christ Jesus our Lord - this we ask in His precious name, AMEN.
