"Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published (that no one could pray), he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem.  Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before." - Daniel 6:10

Lord, I want to be like Daniel, resolute in prayer and my devotion to you no matter what threatens to interfere.  When he was commanded not to pray, he just went right on praying.  He loved you that much and knew you would bless him through it.  I know you love me and will never leave me.  So, I will do my best to not let anything (busy-ness, troubles, evil commands or good work) keep me from staying connected to you.  And I humbly ask that you would keep me on the right track in life by making your Spirit teach me in my heart every step of the way.  I am so grateful that because you are driven by grace, you gladly pick me up when I fall and encourage me when I need it.  Help me be like you to someone else today - forgiving and restoring. AMEN
