Does God respond to the prayers of His people?.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Daniel 9:19 - "O Lord, hear. O Lord, forgive. O Lord, listen and act!
Read - Daniel 9
Daniel prays and an angel tells him that in that very moment of faith and repentance God responds. What if we lived and prayed with an expectation that God hears and then responds according to His will?
Lord, I repent from my ways and submit to Yours.
See Jeremiah 25:11-12 and 29:10.
God gives knowledge to Daniel of what to expect in the future. That includes a season of more waiting, then a coming of the anointed one (Jesus) and then more waiting followed by the culmination of God’s Plan that we still await. The mending of Christ should have been common knowledge from this prophetic glimpse but it wasn’t. If knowledge isn’t applied then it will not affect our lives.
