21 days of Prayer – Day 9

21 days of Prayer – Day 9

 

Scripture says from the first day Daniel started praying, heaven heard and began responding. Daniel didn’t see anything until day 24, but Scripture assures us things were changing on day one. Whether or not you’ve seen any change, you can be sure that things began changing the first day you set your heart towards seeking God!

 

Verse 13 says, “But for twenty-one days the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia blocked my way. Then Michael, one of the archangels, came to help me, and I left him there with the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia.”

 

This text shows us that there are spiritual battles taking place as we pray. Our prayers are powerful and defeat the plans and powers of the enemy in our lives and situations we are facing.

 

Then in verse 19, the man declares, “Don’t be afraid,” he said, “for you are very precious to God. Peace! Be encouraged! Be Strong!” Daniel is reminded and encouraged how precious he is to God, and that same truth applies to you today. You are a son or daughter of the living God. He cares for you and is fighting for you as you call on His name.
