Word, Thought, and Prayer for Day Twenty-Three

Word:

“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king.” (Daniel 2:20-23, NIV)

Meditation Thought: After answering Daniel’s cry of mercy (see the previous day), Daniel’s prayer changes into a prayer of confidence. We can pray prayers of confidence!

Prayer: Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. You change times and seasons; You set up kings and deposes them. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. You reveal deep and hidden things; You know what lies in darkness, and light dwells with You. I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you. You listen to my cries of mercy. You listen to my praises. You hear every word I speak, and You answer, because You are the God of answered prayer. Thank You, God! Let my prayers to You build my confidence and build my faith, and let me know that I worship and speak to the Creator of the Universe.
