Power and Peace Through Prayer

I have often thought about what my greatest surprise will be when I go home to be with the Lord. After much pondering, I have concluded that it will be the tremendous power and peace that was available to me this side of heaven—and how infrequently I used it.*

The Failed Plot against Daniel

They knew Daniel. So to get rid of him, they outlawed prayer. He continued kneeling on his knees, three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God. as he had been doing previously (Daniel 6:10).”

But they didn’t know how powerful prayer is and they didn’t know how powerful God is. “God delivers and rescues and performs signs and wonders in heaven and on earth (Daniel 6:27).”
