• “Do not lose yourself in your everyday work and activities. Rather, lose yourself in God. When you are doing work, let your innermost heart be centered on Him. Live in His presence and abide in Him. Then your work will follow you into eternity, and you will reap a rich harvest.” – Basilea Schlink

Daniel’s Prayer by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/2/11

“Well, it seems like I pray for all my family and every missionary I know. I never know what else to pray for.“

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I think Daniel gives us a good example of knowing how to pray according to God’s will. The nation of Israel was in exile. While reading the prophet Jeremiah, Daniel discovered that their captivity would last seventy years.

Daniel prayed for the outcome that had already been promised in the Scriptures. He said, “Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay.”

By praying for God’s revealed will to be done on earth, Daniel aligned himself with the heart, the plan, and the purposes of God. Through prayer, he became a partner with God in fulfilling those purposes.

You can do the same thing. If you don’t know what to pray for, try praying through the Scriptures. Ask God to align your heart with the things He wants to do.

Verse of the Day

For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. — Romans 13:9-10 (NKJV)
