December 19: Daniel 6

Welcome to The Intentional Podcast. Setting aside time for prayer and Scripture meditation can change the posture of your day. Thank you for spending a few minutes with us as we turn our attention to what Jesus has for the day ahead.

OPENING PRAYER:  

Before you read the Scripture for today, limit the distractions around you and spend time in prayer. Spend time thanking God for the opportunity we have to spend with Him through the reading of His Word.

SCRIPTURE:

Daniel 6

HISTORICAL CONTEXT:

Daniel would have likely been around 80 years old when this took place. No matter the consequence, Daniel was unwilling to not pray for 30 days or to pray in secret. The “den” that he was thrown into was like an enclosure that allowed for people to watch, as this was a common execution tactic during this time. 

REFLECTION QUESTIONS:

  • What phrases stood out to you?
  • What might God be saying to you through this passage, and how can you respond today?
  • What does this passage tell us about God? How does it look forward to Jesus’ coming?
