“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
“For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life,
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.”
Daniel had formed a habit of prayer. As a matter of fact, the Bible says that even when King Darius signed the document that prohibited all men to pray to “any god besides him,” the first thing Daniel did was to go to his house, kneel down and pray, as he had done every day. As the verdict from the king came and Daniel was thrown into the Lion’s Den, he knew that, because he was obedient, he could trust Yahweh to protect him. The peace that he found as he brought his petitions to God in prayer followed him to the Lion’s Den. The same peace will follow you as you face your lions and giants in life’s valleys and battles.
