The original Daniel Prayer was a desperate plea uttered by a man on behalf of his nation. For an entire generation, the people of Judah had been held in captivity and separated from their home. Daniel had prospered under the invader's rule and risen to prominence, yet he never forgot the temple that had been in Jerusalem and his people who had been taken from there. God ultimately performed the greatest miracle in answer to Daniel's desperate prayer by moving the heart of a foreign king to allow the Jews to return to their homeland.
In this five-session video-based Bible study (guide sold separately), Anne Graham Lotz explores what believers in Christ can learn today from this prayer that forever changed the course of a nation. She shows how this type of prayer is one born deep within the soul, erupting through your heart and pouring out on your lips as the Spirit of God infuses the words with spiritual electricity. It is not an everyday now-I-lay-me-down-to-sleep prayer but one birthed under pressure, heartache, and grief. It is a prayer that provides the solution when faced with God's righteous judgment.
The Daniel prayer is heartfelt and desperate. A prayer in which the pray-ers rend their hearts, return to the cross, and repent of personal and national sin. It is a prayer that storms the gates of heaven and doesn't let go until the situation changes. It is a prayer that changes hearts and changes nations--even in the midst of our world today.
