A Lifeline To God

‘Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.’ Daniel 6:10 (NIV).

Daniel was a man who stood alone. He bravely sought his God in prayer, regardless of the consequences. Despite the threats from his enemies and despite the decree that specified no one pray to anyone except the king, Daniel continued to pray three times a day as he had always done. Nothing or no one would hinder his determination to pray.

Prayer is our lifeline to God. And yet we so quickly forfeit our prayers because of the pressure of our busy schedule. Daniel did not let the threat of losing his life itself, hinder him from seeking God, and yet we allow so many less urgent things to get in the way of our communication with God.

Daniel had a life that meant he could not afford not to pray. We too have pressures and troubles that need to brought before our Father and we must attune our ear to hear what He has to say. Prayer is our lifeline to God. It is what keeps us open and sensitive to the leading of His Spirit. It is what strengthens our faith and builds a solid friendship with Him.


‘Father, I want to grow and become close to you, but I cannot even begin to do this well, unless I pray. Help me to seek you. Help me to pray. Thank you.’

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

Final Thoughts:

How do we think we could grow and mature as God’s people if we do not put communication with Him first before all else? How can we ever understand His deep love and care for us if we do not stop to let Him tell us?

Finally, how can we ever know the next step, the best choice, the lessons of growth along the way, if we do not listen long enough by lingering in His presence? God invites us into His presence to pray. God is extending a lifeline called prayer to us. Isn’t it time we took hold of that lifeline more often?

Be Greatly Blessed!
