Bible Text: Daniel 6:10-18 |


Daniel, when given a choice to stop praying to God or be fed to the lions, chose to pray. He didn't compromise or rationalize. In his prayer, he expressed thanks to God, even though his life was on the line. Daniel's private prayer life was a public example of his faith in and commitment to God. His disciplined pattern for praying was like a well tended garden, where his faith was strengthened and flourished through prayer. Not praying was a worse prospect for him than being eaten alive by lions. Daniel was radically committed to prayer.
