Learn to Pray Like Daniel

Which Bible heroes never failed? Daniel stands out.

Not once does the Bible record him committing an error or sin. No man was perfect except Jesus, but Daniel is a rare treasure among the faithful heroes.

The key to Daniel’s success was his committed reliance on the Lord, especially as seen through his consistent prayer life. He always considered God’s will.

Renew Your Passion for Jesus

When Scripture records a warning to Christians, take note. It’s a clue: other Christians had these problems and we probably will too.

Look at Revelation 2:4 with its warning against losing our first love. There is danger: it can happen. The loss of our first love can be gradual and unwitting.

How do we renew our passion for Jesus?

The basic answer is: Think again about your reason for loving Him in the first place.

Don’t Grow Weary

When the disciples urged Jesus to eat something, he said, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about. My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work” (John 4:32-34). 

There are days I feel this way. I love my work and I lose myself in it, even skipping a meal without noticing. When you get into the flow, you truly can say, “I have other food.” I’ve experienced that.

But there are other days too; the kind when the vision isn’t there.

One of the top questions Christians ask is how to deal with the tedium of life. Does this sounds like you?

Learning to See God’s Goodness

For people to see the Lord—that’s my passion. Our most pressing need is to see and understand God.

When we know what God is like and why he is good, that’s when we’ll have:

  • Changed hearts
  • Greater faith
  • True obedience

How do we see what God is like? We look to divinely inspired Scripture to see his words and deeds.

  • Manage my affections?
  • Feel more thankful?
  • Be more consistent in my love?
