And Enoch walked with God

Professing Christian...How is your prayer life these days?

"Daniel......he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God...." (from: Daniel 6:10)

Daniel was not only persistant, but consistent, even under persecution as was the case here.

"For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.." (Eph. 3:14; cf. v.11; all ch. 3)

The apostle Paul, beholding the greatness in the outworking of God's eternal plan for the Church, also could only fall to his knees in reverence, to give thanks and pray that others would 'see' also.

"But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly." (Matt. 6:6)

Notice that the Lord Jesus Christ did not say "if"..... you can find the time to pray...that will be fine. He said "when....".

Do you have time today?
