Daniel 9:1-11:1; 1 John 2:18-3:6; Psalm 121:1-8; Proverbs 28:27-28

Prayer still works! Daniel as a man of faith relied upon prayer. He was a true intercessor. He not only prayed for himself and his issues but he also prayed for Israel and their punishment. There is a power that God releases when we pray for others.

Too often our prayers are selfish but God also calls on us to pray for others around us. Daniel was in a privileged position even though he was in exile. His life was very pampered and he could have turned a blind-eye to the suffering of others.

But, as a real man of God, Daniel saw it as his responsibility to pray for other people. It is our responsibility to pray for those around us. If there are hurting people around you, they need your prayer. If there are broken families, people in financial distress, or even people wandering aimlessly through life, God has put them in our path so that we might pray for them. Be observant and fulfill your purpose to pray for those around you. They are depending on your prayers.
