Lord, We Need You


October 13


Read Daniel 9:18-19

Give ear, our God, and hear; open Your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears Your Name. We do not make requests of You because we are righteous, but because of Your great mercy. Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For Your sake, my God, do not delay, because Your city and Your people bear Your Name.




Yesterday we looked at how Daniel praised God no matter who was on the throne. He was respectful of those in authority over him and served his country well his entire life. But his ultimate allegiance was to his God.


Today, we see how Daniel was faithful to pray for His people. When Daniel was young, his nation was carried off into captivity. Despite being warned by the prophets, the nation of Israel continually disobeyed until God allowed them to be exiled. Daniel knew that the prophet Jeremiah had prophesied in Jeremiah 25:11-12 that Israel was to be exiled to Babylon for 70 years. Daniel knew that those 70 years were coming to an end. So he prayed fervently for His people.


Daniel’s words in Daniel 9:1-17 is an excellent model of prayer. First, he humbled himself and made sure his heart was right with God. Then, he worshipped the Lord, calling to mind the glory and greatness of God. He is worthy of our worship. Remembering how great God is bolsters our faith. He has done mighty works and He can do them again! Finally, he confessed his sins and the sins of his people before he humbly asked God to show his people mercy.


He said that he didn’t make requests of God because His people deserved it. He cried out to God because he knew that God was full of mercy.


Friends, will you join me in praying for God’s people? Churches across our nation are struggling during these tense and divisive times. Globally, churches are experiencing persecution and pain. Let’s look to Daniel’s example and intercede on behalf of the church. We don’t deserve it. But His mercy has never been about who we are and what we’ve done. It’s always been about who He is and what He did.



Lord God, today I am praying for my people. We have strayed from You in so many ways. I don’t ask for Your help because we deserve it. I ask for it because You are merciful. Heal our land and bring us back to You, Lord. Amen.
