Our students head to school soon – if not already. There, they stand on a battle ground.
Another young man stood on battle ground as well: Daniel.
Our young man prayed – putting many of us to shame, if truth be told.
And what happened during those days of fervent, heart-felt prayer?
Daniel prayed for 21 days, and nothing happened.
But then came breakthrough.
Then he said to me, Don’t be afraid, Daniel; for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard: and I have come for your words’ sake. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; but, behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me: and I remained there with the kings of Persia. Now I have come to make you understand what shall happen to your people in the latter days; for the vision is yet for many days:
Daniel 10:12-14 WEB
I itch to see breakthrough in my own students’ lives. You might have a special student in which you’d cherish breakthrough as well.
Why not support students (our child, niece/nephew, neighbor or others) with prayer? We may not see evidence of answers right away, but remember Daniel’s “21.”
Battle is being waged.
Today we’re praying for the head – their mind and thoughts. After all, isn’t that a breeding ground for actions?
