Daniel was a man of prayer. He was thrown to the lions, but lived to tell: “My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths and they have not harmed me (Daniel 6:22).“
We must be people of prayer. Our “adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).“
God will shut the lion’s mouth.

Their faces showed immeasurable sorrow as they stood mourning the death of son* and brother.

God has been a Father for a very long time. He has many, many children.
He relates patiently and with understanding when we pray.
Full day ahead
So much to do
Take time to pray
The Lord is worthy of our praise.
All my bones shall say, “O Lord, who is like you (Psalm 35:10 ESV)?”
With every bone in my body I will praise him (Psalm 35:10 NLT).
This depth of prayer came before David was rescued from his enemies (see Psalm 35:17).
