Daniel continues to pray.
“So now, our God,
listen to the prayer of Your servant and to his supplications,
and for Your sake, O Lord, let Your face shine on Your desolate sanctuary.
Daniel was forthright.
He asked for “now”.
He acknowledge the God is their God.
He requested that God listen to his prayer…the prayer of His servant.
He asked God to listen to his supplications…intreaties for favor on behalf of his people.
Daniel again stated why…for the Lord’s sake.
Daniel wanted the Lord to “let Your face shine on Your desolate sanctuary”.
To bring forth His glory.
To release all His favor.
For His own sake.
What might the Lord do if we prayed in like manner for…
- Our families
- Our Body
- Our community
- Our leadership
For His sake.
For His glory.
