Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 14 W 5 D 4.

Welcome tot he Upper Room. So glad you came. 

We continue witjh our meditations in The Book of Daniel, as we lead ourselves into The Throne Room. Today ww land on Daniel 6:18. It reads, 

"Now the king went to his palace and spent the night fasting; and no musicians were brought before him. Also his sleep went from him." 

This is what is know as a state of sobriety, or sobering of the soul. The king had a challenge before him. He had come to the end of himself on the issue. His only other recourse was to a power or being higher and bigger than him.

The bigger surely blesses the smaller, and not the opposite. That is teh call of pray, and sometimes it requires empowering it with fasting. The is why Jesus did not only give us one disposition to getting our needs met. 

In Matthew 7:7, Jesus tells to, "“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you." Obviously, Darius has been asking, or seeking a way for an intervention in keeping Daniel alive before he was incarcerated.

He did not stop just because he was incarcerated. He continued pleading. Funny thing is the scriptures does nopt tell us that Darius prayed. At least not in the traditional way we suppose prayer is. Darius prayed in the secret and quietness of the desire of his heart.

God does not only listen to the request that is audible to men. He read and listens to the secret intentions of the heart also. He if judges the secret intent of the heart how mjuch miore will he also aswer the secret request of the heart also.

We same the example is Prophet Samuel's mother. The scriptures talk of how Hannah prayed in her heart [1 Samuel 1:13]. The more important thing is the fire of the desire and from the help is sought.

Let's pray.

The Saint.
