Heavenly Father, thank You that You are a God Who hears and answers the prayers and petitions of Your people. Help me to cast all my cares on You and to bring all my problems and difficulties to You immediately, no matter how large or small they may be. Help me to always turn to You FIRST when I am faced with tough problems, just like Daniel and his three friends. Thank You that nothing is too difficult for You to deal with, and I pray that I would ALWAYS turn to you first, rather than trying to sort things out on my own. Thank You for being such a faithful God. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of unshakable faith, we see in the lives of Daniel and his three friends... when faced with an impossible task. Increase my faith, I pray, and help me to follow their wise example by bringing everything to You in prayer and supplication when confronted by the difficulties and dangers of life... knowing that ALL wisdom knowledge, power, and preeminence belongs to You. Give me godly courage and a childlike trust in You, and I pray that would not falter when faced with challenging circumstances but look to You alone - for You have promised to be with us in every eventuality of life, and are worthy of all our praise and worship forever and ever - this I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus is the Rock on which I stand and the Stone Who will finally smash the kingdoms of this world, when He returns in power and great glory to set up His kingdom on earth. Keep me ever looking to Him and trusting Him in every area of my life. When the enemy comes in like a flood, in my individual life and our lives corporately, I praise and thank You that YOU are our Standard, and will fight for us, protect us and provide for all our needs, according to Your riches in glory. May Your kingdom come and Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven, for You alone are worthy and YOURS is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for telling us the end from the beginning and purposing in Your heart to save me from my sin. Thank You that a day is coming when You will bring to nothing the proud puppets of Satan, who have enslaved the world, rejected Your offer of salvation, and put on a necklace of rebellion and pride. Keep me ever looking to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith, the Rock on Whom I stand, and the Stone Who will smash to pieces all that is evil. How I praise Your name for the holy Scriptures. Increase my understanding I pray, and keep me looking for Christ's any day return. 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 before it is too late. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
