O Lord, Hear!

O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your Name. Daniel 9: 19

 Daniel through his studies saw that God would complete seventy years in the desolation of Jerusalem, so Daniel decided to pray. Daniel chapter 9

Today we see the decline of our society in everything that is God’s, and we come to pray. God knows what we are going to pray. While the word is on our tongue God knows. God does not have to wait until we are finished praying to act or to respond. At the beginning of Daniel’s prayer God sent forth his command.

“At the beginning of your supplications, the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision:” Gabriel told Daniel Verses 21-23

God answered Daniel’s prayer by showing him His plan – what would take place in the future. God may surprise you in the way He responds to your prayer. God acted immediately even before Daniel could speak two words. God knew Daniel’s heart. God knows our hearts and He will respond accordingly to our prayers.

Daniel worked among the ungodliest of men. Yet he remained faithful to God. He did not compromise his beliefs in God. Daniel prayed three times a day. He was fearless, yet respectful, and he was humble. God honored Daniel for the way he lived his life.

We have to honor God in our living, and He will honor us by responding to our prayers. God may act immediately or He may in His wisdom hold off until the appropriate time. In the fullness of time God sent forth His Son.
