Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God. Daniel 6:10
Let’s consider Daniel for a moment.
Here is one of the great rulers of the Persian empire, in charge of the King’s affairs and of the affairs of the entire government. If anyone is really busy, it’s Daniel!
But in spite of all this responsibility, he makes it a point to set himself apart from the world and pray three times a day.
This really struck me. I mean, are we really that busy?
And busy doing what?
If we are neglecting to meet personally with God, then we’re simply doing more than He intended!
Let’s keep our priorities in order and be a people of prayer.
There is so much work to be done, but not at the expense of our most important relationship.
