Daniel 9:5,6,20 NLT
But we have sinned and done wrong. We have rebelled against you and scorned your commands and regulations.
We have refused to listen to your servants the prophets, who spoke on your authority to our kings and princes and ancestors and to all the people of the land.
I went on praying and confessing my sin and the sin of my people, pleading with the LORD my God for Jerusalem, his holy mountain.
Series: Imitating Daniel’s Prayer
We have been studying the life and prayer of Daniel this week. We saw how Daniel’s dependency on prayer and expression of trust in God’s promises gained him favour with God and the people around him.
In the scripture portions for today, we see Daniel’s consistency in pursuing God, even as he asks for forgiveness for the sins he has committed and the sins the people of Israel has committed. Sins can sometimes block, hinder or even stop us from receiving answers to our prayer.
Instead of ignoring our sin, God has made provision for us to go to Him and receive mercy whenever we are in need of forgiveness. The Bible says that if we confess our sin, God is just, and faithful enough to forgive us our sins.
When we bring out sins before God and find healing and forgiveness for them, it brings in a bridge between heaven and earth, thus allowing the answers to our prayers to come.
