The Prayer That Changed History
“There’s a prayer in the Bible that activated a prophetic promise. It’s a prayer that caused all of heaven to respond to it. It caused the release of angel princes to come and assist. It bound a demon prince and knocked him off of his throne. The angel Gabriel was sent to answer this prayer that Daniel prayed. Daniel had been calling out in prayer for his nation. He had been praying about their future as all of us have. He was asking God to intervene. God heard his prayer the very first day that he started praying and He sent Gabriel with an answer. But, there was spiritual warfare in the heavenlies and the angel Michael was sent to help Gabriel. The battle lasted 21 days, but they were victorious over the demon Prince of Persia as Daniel continued to pray.” (Tim Sheets, 3/23/18, The Turnaround)1
“The Lord did not hesitate to bring the disaster on us, for the Lord our God is righteous in everything he does; yet we have not obeyed him. Now, Lord our God, who brought your people out of Egypt with a mighty hand and who made for yourself a name that endures to this day, we have sinned, we have done wrong. Lord, in keeping with all your righteous acts, turn away your anger and your wrath from Jerusalem, your city, your holy hill. Our sins and the iniquities of our ancestors have made Jerusalem and your people an object of scorn to all those around us. Now, our God, hear the prayers and petitions of your servant. For your sake, Lord, look with favor on your desolate sanctuary. Give ear, our God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name.” (Daniel 9:14-19; NIV)
