Wednesday April 20: Daniel 10
John Piper describes prayer as a wartime walkie-talkie for the mission of the church against the evil one. Daniel experienced spiritual warfare in this chapter as evil forces challenged his prayers. But the resistance made him even more fervent and earnest (v. 12-13). In the same way that the iPhone and other smart phones are powerful tools in the hands of business professionals, so is faithful prayer in the hands of Christians. Today, focus your heart on asking your heavenly Father for understanding, strength, and the Words of Life to speak. Use prayer for the proclamation of God’s Glory.
Deeper Study: Meditate on Ephesians 6:10-20. Prayer is for wielding the Word.
