Daniel's Attitude in Prayer and His Bibical World View

Basic Principles for Christians to Achieve a Biblical Worldview Charles e Whisnant, Bible Teacher-Pastor, Expositor

Daniel 9 and Selected Scripture   February 08 2012
·       He prayed, seventh, dependent on God. Utterly dependent on God. He said "You're a great," in verse 4, "awesome God, You keep Your covenant, You show mercy to those that love you and to those that keep Your commandments.. In other words, he prayed his prayer dependent on the absolute unchanging promise of an unchanging God.

·       And finally, I would say that he focused on God's glory. The whole point of his prayer was on the glory of God. That was the whole thing. "Do it for Your sake." Verse l9, "O Lord, hear, O Lord forgive, O Lord hearken and do, and defer not," and here it comes, "for Thine own sake, O my God, for Thy city and Thy people are called by Thy name." This is Your people and Your city and Your name is at stake. And he was praying. And he was praying the right way
