Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.” Daniel 10:12-14 (NIV)
Your Words Were Heard
I have faith that you will give me prayers to pray. I believe that you will hear and answer my prayers. I know that you will teach me how to pray. I am certain that you will give me the strength to keep on praying until I have an answer from you. I have no doubt that I will face barriers and encounter spiritual warfare as I pray the prayers that you give me to pray. I am sure that you are calling me to be persistent in prayer. I say these things as statements of faith and as prayers to you. Let me hear them as prayers from you. I’m asking you to teach me how to pray. Give me prayers to pray that you will hear and answer. Help me to pray according to your will and your ways. Help me to pray in line with your purposes and plans. I’m asking for you to give me the strength to continue to be persistent in prayer. I’m asking you to help me to overcome barriers and spiritual warfare I will encounter as I pray the prayers you give me to pray. These are my prayers. Those are prayers that I will definitely hear and answer.
On what have you set your mind? I have set my mind on living in an intimate relationship with you. I will draw near to you in prayer. I will humble myself before you. I will sit before you. I will wait in your presence. I will listen attentively to your voice. I want to know you. I want to walk in your ways. I want to know and do your will. I want you to give me prayers to pray. I want your kingdom to come on earth. I want your will and purposes and plans to be accomplished in my life and in the world around me. I want you to use my life for your kingdom and glory. I want to shine brightly as a witness for you in the world. I want to be used by you. I want to be an instrument in your hands. I’m here now, I am at your service. Teach and train me. Use me. I have heard and I will answer these desires and prayers of your heart. Follow me. I will teach you. I will train you. I will guard and guide you. I will give you prayers to pray. You will bear fruit for my kingdom and bring glory to my name.
Lord, teach me to fast and persist in prayer in the circumstances and situations that others and I face in life. Give me strength to keep on praying. Break through anything preventing an answer to the prayers you give me to pray. Amen
