When Daniel was in the lions’ den, we learned that prayer is what saved Daniel. But it was not Daniel but Darius that prayed. Verse 18 says Darius went home and fasted. Darius was so concerned for Daniel, that he could not sleep. He was so anxious about Daniel’s fate, that he went as soon as possible to the den to see if Daniel was saved.
Questions for further thought:
1. What impression do you get when you see that Daniel was not the only one praying?
2. How have you seen prayer do the “impossible” in your experiences?
Challenge: What is the “impossible” thing in your life (or someone else’s life) that you need to pray for?
