Daniel 6:11 “Then these men assembled and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.”
11 Then these men assembled and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.
Daniel did not hide his worship. Daniel followed Jeremiah in this. Although Daniel was busy as an administrator of a kingdom, he kept short accounts with God.
Je 29: 1 “Now these are the words of the letter that Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem to the remainder of the elders who were carried away captive—to the priests, the prophets, and all the people whom Nebuchadnezzar had carried away captive from Jerusalem to Babylon. … 10 For thus says the Lord: After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place. 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.”
PRINCIPLE: The claim that we do not have time for prayer is a rationalization.
APPLICATION: Many busy executives claim that they do not have time for God. This is always a rationalization. It is a matter of putting priority on the things of greatest value.
