Praying Through the Bible #100
TEXT: Daniel 9:11-17
Jennifer Kennedy Dean, the founder of the Praying Life Foundation, wrote the following in her book titled Live a Praying Life: "To pray with power, the pray-er must agree with God. A pray-er must be in agreement with the intercession of Jesus, who is always in agreement with the will of God. When more than one intercessor, each of whom is in agreement with God, come together to pray God’s will, then anything they ask Him to do, He will do."
Today, I want us to look at the element of agreement in Daniel's prayer. We will be focusing on verses 11 - 17. Throughout his prayer, Daniel agreed with God on three important issues. Let us look at those issues right now.
1. Daniel agreed with God's view of Israel's behaviour.
2. Daniel agreed with God's judgment of Israel's sin.
3. Daniel agreed with God's promises regarding Israel's restoration.
Every aspect of Daniel's prayer found him in agreement with God's word and God's will. The effectiveness of our own prayers is limited by whether or not we are praying according to the will of God. Chip Brogden said, "God waits for a Remnant to rise up and to pray in agreement with His Purpose before He does anything. He will do nothing apart from the Church. Apart from HIM, we CAN do nothing; apart from US, He WILL do nothing."
The question today is: Are we praying in agreement with God? Are we interceding in agreement with God's purpose? Are we standing in the gap in agreement with God's will?
