Daniel . . . knelt down on his knees three times a day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.
Daniel’s prayers kept him safe in the lions’ den; and prayer will keep you safe in whatever den you’re in today. Dr. Elmer Towns told of an office manager who liked everything about her job except interacting with the plant manager. He was negative, and she dreaded going to his office. Towns told her, “Pray the Lord’s Prayer on the way to his office.” He suggested she pray that God’s name be hallowed in the plant, that His kingdom would come, His will be done in the plant, and so forth. The woman took up the challenge. Whenever she was called to the plant manager’s office, she silently but sincerely prayed through the Lord’s Prayer on the way. It changed things, not only for her but for the entire company.1
In safety or danger, we have the power of prayer on our side. You can pray as you walk through life. At home, work, or school, we can breathe a prayer for God’s will to be done. In every situation, we have recourse to prayer.
Take advantage of it today, whatever den you’re in.
Fervent prayers produce phenomenal results.
