Daniel’s Prayer

This week I was reading through the story of Daniel – in every season he kept God first and lived in God’s favor.
In this time God’s favor means that even though the circumstances may not be great in the world – God’s protection, opportunity and blessing are on us.
I love Daniel’s reaction to a tough time in Daniel 6:10 “Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.”

1. He Went Up, Not Down
Let’s look to God’s voice and not the negative voices that may be present around us.

2. He Never Lost Sight Of His Vision
Keep your sight on the things God has spoken to you!

3. He was consistent
Sometimes when things go wrong, we forget our good habits.
Keep praying, journalling, being at Church and connect group!

4. He stayed thankful
The enemy can change our outward circumstances but he cannot change our inward confessions.
Let’s keep a right heart!

Join with me this week in praying for our American brothers and sisters who face not just the virus epidemic but also fight racial conflict and hurt right now.
Our heart at Lifehouse towards people from every nation and language is the same as Jesus commands in Mark 12:31 “Love your neighbor as yourself”.

We can’t wait to see you Sunday and have a great weekend!
Josh & Yuki
