Daniel chapter 9 beginning at verse 2: “In the first year of his reign, I Daniel, understood by the books, the number of the years specified by the word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish 70 years in the desolations of Jerusalem. Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make requests by prayer and supplications with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes.”
Studying the word of God one day, Daniel the prophet suddenly discovered that God had promised at a certain time to set His people free from captivity once again. Against all odds, except for the promise of God, he began to pray and to believe what God had spoken, and he lived to see the miracle.
The heart of the king was moved, and the people rose up to return and to rebuild. Open the Word of God today. If you do, you too will live to see the miracle of His promise fulfilled in your life.
It’s time to pray.
