Daniel 6:10 (ESV)
When Daniel knew that the document had been signed, he went to his house where he had windows in his upper chamber open toward Jerusalem. He got down on his knees three times a day and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as he had done previously.
This week has been one of those weeks that there wasn’t enough time to get done all that had to. As the week ends I was so busy I feel exhausted.
Let's consider Daniel for a moment. Here is one of the great rulers of the Persian empire, in charge of the King's affairs and of the affairs of the entire government. Now if anyone is really busy -- it's Daniel! But in spite of all this, he makes it a point to set himself apart from the world and pray three times a day.
This really got me. I mean, how busy are we -- really? And what are we really doing?
Think about this, if we are neglecting the important things of God, we're simply doing more than God intended! Let's keep our priorities in order! Let's be a people of prayer!
Dear Lord, help us to not get our self so busy that we forget the things that are important. Help us never forget to get on our knees and pray. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
