UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:
Sometimes circumstances of life cause us to feel like we cannot go on. Where can we find strength to do so? Daniel found strength in prayer and from the angel sent by God to encourage him and answer his prayer.
In order for us to receive God’s message, we must be tuned in to God’s spiritual frequency.
Sometimes life throws us curveballs and we feel like we are about to strike out. In such times, we must remember how God has helped us in the past. We must also place our faith in the written promises of God. We should also turn our attention toward heaven and make our request to the God who can answer our prayers like He answered Daniel’s prayers, even though it took time to accomplish.
Dear God, thank you for never leaving us nor forsaking us. You keep your promise to supply our needs according to your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. You are our Living LORD, our Sovereign Savior, and our Faithful Friend. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
