R3 Online Prayer, The Prayer of Daniel, Wed. July 12, 2017

Introduction:

The Prayer of Daniel is a model prayer that moved heaven to change a nation.  The effectiveness of this prayer is found in Daniel the intercessor, as well as, his positioning himself in prayer, his persistence to prevail in prayer, and his unrelenting commitment to call a nation back to God.

Daniel’s prayer was not intended to pray then lay aside.  Rather it is a point of agreement where in New Testament believers can tap into what God did through this Old Testament saint.  In Daniel we find what was in Jesus’ parable on prayer in Luke 18.  Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and not give up.  He laid out how a persevering widow got justice against her adversary from an unjust judge.  Jesus then pivots the parable to the personal saying: Learn the lesson from this unjust judge.  Even he rendered a just decision in the end.  So don’t you think God will surely give justice to his chosen people who cry out to him day and night? (V.6-7 NLT)

So how long should we pray this The Daniel Prayer IT IS TIME TO SEEK THE LORD, UNTIL HE COMES AND RAINS RIGHTEOUSNESS ON YOU. (Hos. 10:12b)

The Parallels of Judah and America are undeniable:

JUDAH                                                                               AMERICA

  • Blessed by God……………………………………………Blessed by God
  • Sinned against God……………………………………..Sinned against God
  • Warned by the prophets……………………………..Warned by the prophets
  • Responded wrongly……………………………………..Responding wrongly
  • Came under God’s judgment………………………..Coming under God’s judgment

 

The Prophet Jeremiah was the forerunner to Daniel’s being the anchorman in this prophetic race for destiny.  Jeremiah prophesied: Has a nation changed their gods, which are no gods?  But My people have changed their glory for that which does not profit.  For My people have committed two evils, they have forsaken Me the fountain of living waters, and dug for themselves wells, broken wells, that can hold no water.  Your wickedness will correct you, and your backsliding shall rebuke you: know therefore, and you shall see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that you have forsaken the LORD your God, and that my fear is not in you, says the Lord God of hosts. (Jer. 2:11-13; 19) 

God used Daniel:

  • To pray for the nation and confess their national sins
  • To call God’s chosen to repentance.
  • To reassure God’s chosen—that their present situation was not their final destination.
  • To pass onto the future generations the redemptive revelation of God and the prophetic knowledge of His sovereignty and kingdom rule world out end.

 

As we pray we are not seeking nationalism, patriotism, comfort, or convenience as Americans.  Our quest is not to “Make America Great Again” but to “Make America Right With God Again”.  We as Americans are praying for our nation to turn and return to the God who made us such a blessed nation!  The foundation of this nation is evident: Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people (Pr. 19:34).   Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD (Ps. 33:12).  Upon observing the great emergence of America, Alex de Tocqueville wrote: “The secret to America’s greatness is heard from her pulpits aflame with righteousness.  America is great because America is good, and if ever America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

Benjamin Franklin in his request for prayer at the Constitutional Convention, July 28, 1787 said: “The longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth—that God governs the affairs of men.  And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, it is probable that an empire cannot rise without his aid.  In the sacred writings it says, ‘Unless the LORD builds the house they labor in vain that build it.’  Without His concurring aid we shall succeed in building this political building no better, than the builders of Babel: We shall become divided by little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye word for future ages. I therefore move—that henceforth prayers involving the assistance of heaven…be held every morning in this Assembly.”

The ultimate outcome is held in our hands and hearts.  God said, “If My people…” He is seeking our purpose, passion, pursuit, persistence, and prevailing with Him in prayer as did Daniel.  Billy Graham well said, “If America does not repent, God will have to resurrect Sodom and Gomorrah and apologize.”  Ours is a call of repentance!

Alas, we must take hold of that which has taken hold of us!  Edmond Burke said, “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” Our responsibility is to run the race marked for our generation and change the trajectory of this nation!  Dick Eastman wrote: “Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance, it is laying hold of His willingness.”

Today as we pray let us position ourselves as Daniel did.  Those that continue to ask will continue to receive, those that continue to seek will keep on finding, and those who continue to knock the doors will keep on opening. –Jesus (Mt. 7:8)

 

 

  1. Daniel Purposed Not To Defile Himself And Prayed from An Excellent Spirit. (Dan. 1:8; 5:12)

(PREPARATION OF THE HEART)         

Daniel 9:3-6 NKJV 

Then I SET MY FACE TOWARD THE LORD GOD TO MAKE REQUEST BY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATIONS,  with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession,  and said, “O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments.  Neither have we heeded Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings and our princes, to our fathers and all the people of the land.

 

Main Point: For us to purpose and position ourselves as did Daniel to stand in the gap, make up the hedge, and intercede before God on behalf of the nation. Pray God’s promises over the U.S., as well as, speak to the Mountains of Influence in Arts/Entertainment/Media.

 

Scriptures:

  • But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. –Dan. 1:8 NKJV
  • Inasmuch as an excellent spirit, knowledge, understanding, interpreting dreams, solving riddles, and explaining enigmas were found in this Daniel…–Dan. 5:12 NKJV
  • Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord?Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully.He shall receive blessing from the Lord,And righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him,Who seek Your face. Selah –Ps. 24:3-6 NKJV
  • Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight,O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer. –Ps. 19:14 NKJV
  • If I regard iniquity in my heart,The Lord will not hear. –Ps. 66:18 NKJV
  • …who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear…–Heb. 5:7 NKJV
  • The end and culmination of all things is near. Therefore, be sound-minded and self-controlled for the purpose of prayer [staying balanced and focused on the things of God so that your communication will be clear, reasonable, specific and pleasing to Him.] –1 Pet. 4:7 AMP.
  • Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and the right way. 24 Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. –1 Sam. 12:23-24 NKJV
  • Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom. Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. –Ps. 51:6, 10-11 NKJV
  • Search me, O God, and know my heart;Try me, and know my anxieties;And see if there is any wicked way in me,And lead me in the way everlasting. –Ps. 139:23-24 NKJV
  • Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’  I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” –Lk. 18:9-14 NKJV
  • Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him. –Jn. 9:31
  • Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; –Col. 4:2
  • Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. –1 Sam. 12:24 NKJV

(CONFESSIONS OF THE MOUTH)                                         

 

Daniel 9:7-10 NKJV 

O LORD, RIGHTEOUSNESS BELONGS TO YOU, but to us shame of face, as it is this day—to the men of Judah, to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel,               those near and those far off in all the countries to which You have driven them,because of the unfaithfulness which they have committed against You.  “O Lord, to us belongs shame of face, to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, because we have SINNED AGAINST YOU. TO THE LORD OUR GOD BELONG MERCY AND FORGIVENESS, though we have rebelled against Him. We have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in His laws, which He set before us by His servants the prophets.

  • But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. –1 Jn. 7, 9 NKJV

Blow the trumpet in Zion,Consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly; Let the priests, who minister to the Lord,Weep between the porch and the altar; Let them say, “Spare Your people, O Lord,And do not give Your heritage to reproach,That the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples,‘Where is their God?’” –Joel 2:12-15, 17 NKJV
  • I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You In a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters They shall not come near him. You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah –Ps. 32:5-7 NKJV
  • Have mercy upon me, O God,According to Your lovingkindness; According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions.Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin.For I acknowledge my transgressions,And my sin is always before me.  Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight—That You may be found just when You speak, And blameless when You judge. –Ps. 51:1-4 NKJV

  1. Daniel Positioned Himself To Speak To God For The Nation To Speak To The Nation For God.

(HEAR HIS VOICE and OBEY HIS WORD)                 

 

Daniel 9:11-15 NKJV

 

Yes, all Israel has transgressed Your law, and has departed so AS NOT TO OBEY YOUR VOICE;  therefore the curse and the oath written in the Law of Moses the servant of God have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against Him. AND HE HAS CONFIRMED HIS WORDS,  WHICH HE SPOKE AGAINST US AND AGAINST OUR JUDGES WHO JUDGED US, by bringing upon us a great disaster; for under the whole heaven such has never been done as what has been done to Jerusalem (Washington, D.C.).  “As it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us; yet WE HAVE NOT MADE OUR PRAYER BEFORE THE LORD OUR GOD, that we might turn from our iniquities and UNDERSTAND YOUR TRUTH.  Therefore the Lord has kept the disaster in mind, and brought it upon us; for the Lord our God is righteous in all the works which He does, though we have not obeyed His voice.  And now, O Lord our God, who brought Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and made Yourself a name, as it is this day—we have sinned, we have done wickedly!

 

Main Point: For us to position ourselves as intercessors and advocates for God who listen to His voice, speak what He is saying, and speak to the Mountains of Influence in Education/Family.

 

Scriptures:

  • So Samuel said: “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.” 1 Sam. 15:22-23 NKJV
  • Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. The eyes of the Lordare on the righteous,And His ears are open to their cry. The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,And delivers them out of all their troubles.The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. –Ps. 34:11,15,17-18 NKJV
  • For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;You do not delight in burnt offering.The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,A broken and a contrite heart—
    These, O God, You will not despise. Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, With burnt offering and whole burnt offering; Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar. –Ps. 51:16-17, 19 NKJV
  • But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear. Justice is turned back, And righteousness stands afar off; For truth is fallen in the street, And equity cannot enter. So truth fails, And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Is. 59:2; 14-15 NKJV
  • Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,”lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said:“Today, if you will hear His voice,Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”–Heb. 3:12-15 NKJV
  • For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. –Heb. 4:12 NKJV
  • Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. –2 Tim. 2:15
  • All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.—2 Tim. 3:16-17 NKJV
  • Bless the Lord, O my soul;And all that is within me, bless His holy name!Bless the Lord, O my soul,And forget not all His benefits:Who forgives all your iniquities,Who heals all your diseases,Who redeems your life from destruction,Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies…–Ps. 103:1-4 NKJV
  • In my distress I called to the LORD and he answered me…You LORD My God, brought my life up from the pit. –Jonah 2:2; 6

 

Prayer Points:  Education/Family

  • Pray for the accelerated collapse of liberal progressive agendas in education.
  • Pray for the removal of ungodly lawless teachers and replace them with teachers who are godly and holy and teach with excellence.
  • For the education systems to turn from teaching liberal socialism and secular humanism (i.e. “the tree of knowledge of good and evil”) to restoring Biblical values and worldview along with our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
  • Division, hostility, and anarchy on college campuses.
  • For accurate teaching between Evolution and Creationism.
  • For students to rise up and seize their First Amendment Rights under the Constitution and bring revival to our public, private, and homeschools.
  • For the prince of the power of the air be stayed in indoctrinating and programming the minds of young people and for the Holy Spirit to again hover over the darkness and chaos of the deep and transform this generation by the renewing of their minds.
  • For righteousness, goodness, and truth to prevail over evil, hatred, and confusion.
  • For God’s people to retake their place as knowing their dominion being salt and light and subduing the culture— not by might, nor power, but by His Spirit; forcefully advance the kingdom of heaven against the gates of hell.
  • Restoration of the family and returning of the fathers to their created place.
  • Healing in marriages and families.
  • More aggressive focus on preventing abortions, adopting children, and raising up spiritual fathers/mothers.

 

 

  1. Daniel Persisted In Prayer And Fasting Until The Answer Came

(PRAYER FOR THE NATION)                                                 

 

Daniel 9:16-19 NKJV 

“O Lord, according to all Your righteousness, I PRAY, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from Your city Jerusalem (Washington, D.C.), Your holy mountain; because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem (Washington, D.C.) and Your people are a reproach  to all those around us. Now therefore, our God, HEAR THE PRAYER OF YOUR SERVANT, AND HIS SUPPLICATIONS, AND FOR THE LORD’S SAKE CAUSE YOUR FACE TO SHINE ON YOUR SANCTUARY, WHICH IS DESOLATE.  O my God, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our desolations, and the city which is called by Your name; for we DO NOT PRESENT OUR SUPPLICATIONS BEFORE YOU because OF OUR RIGHTEOUS DEEDS, BUT BECAUSE OF YOUR GREAT MERCIES.  O LORD, HEAR! O LORD, FORGIVE! O LORD, LISTEN AND ACT! DO NOT DELAY FOR YOUR OWN SAKE, MY GOD, FOR YOUR CITY AND YOUR PEOPLE ARE CALLED BY YOUR NAME.

 

Main Point: To stand in the gap and make up the hedge for the U.S. that we would turn from our wicked ways return to the One who raised up for such a time as this and speak to the Mountain of Influence in Government.

  • The Lordis gracious and full of compassion,Slow to anger and great in mercy.9 The Lord is good to all,And His tender mercies are over all His works.10 All Your works shall praise You, O Lord,And Your saints shall bless You.11 They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom,And talk of Your power,12 To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts,And the glorious majesty of His kingdom.13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.14 The Lord upholds all who fall,And raises up all who are bowed down. – 145:8-14 NKJV
  • Sow with a view to righteousness [that righteousness, like seed, may germinate];Reap in accordance with mercy and lovingkindness. Break up your uncultivated ground,For it is time to seek and search diligently for the Lord [and to long for His blessing] Until He comes to rain righteousness and His gift of salvation on you.You have plowed and planted wickedness, you have reaped the [willful] injustice [of oppressors], You have eaten the fruit of lies. Because you have trusted in your own way and your chariots, and in your many warriors…–Hos. 10:12-13 AMP.

  • Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; by his knowledge the watery depths were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew.  My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion…–Prov.3:5-6; 19-21 NIV

  1. Daniel Prevailed In Prayer By Pursuing A Vision Of Future Hope For The Nation.

(ANTICIPATING ANSWERS TO PRAYER)                              

 

Daniel 9:20-23 NKJV 

Now while I was speaking, praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel,  and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God, yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering.  And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand.  At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision:

 

Main Point:  For God’s people to possess the gates of the enemy and the enthrone Christ as our King, Lawgiver, and Judge over America; for the church to be the “glorious church” built on the rock of revelation of who He is. Speak to the Mountain of Influence in Religion.

 

Scriptures:

  • For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. –Mk. 11:23-24
  • If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! –Mt. 7:11 NKJV
  • And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. –1 Jn. 3:3

When I kept silent, my bones grew old Through my groaning all the day long.  For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah  I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah  For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You In a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters They shall not come near him.  You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah  I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.  Do not be like the horse or like the mule, Which have no understanding, Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, Else they will not come near you. 10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him. 11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart! –Ps. 32:1 ff

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you.
