Prayer, an Adventure with God

Lesson 4

Prayer and Spiritual Conflect 

 Read: Daniel 10

Try to recall a time when you felt close to God.  What has been the impact of that experience?  This passage give us a rare insight into how prayer effects what happens in the (usually invisible) arena of spiritual warfare.  Please read Daniel 10

Consider the following Questions: 

  1. What does this passage tells you about Daniel’s character?  
  2. When God Spoke to him, Daniel refused to eat certain foods and mourned for a period of three weeks?
  3. How did Daniel’s encounter with the heavenly messenger affect him?
  4. What do verses 8-9, 15-17 teach us about the way God deals with us?
  5. The description of the man Daniel saw in verses 5-6, is very similar to John’s description of Christ in Revelation 1:13-15; alternatively, the “man” may have been an angel.  Even through Daniel had received a visit from a heavenly being before, this was still a very unusual occurrence.  Why do you think God went to this length to communicate with Daniel?
  6. God speaks to us because He want us to know Him and serve Him.  But when God speaks we don’t always respond with the urgency or seriousness that Daniel did.  Why might we be reluctant to respond to God ?
  7. We often interpret world events on a purely human level.  But God reveals to Daniel that there is a spiritual battle going on behind the scenes for his people (v. 13,20-21).  What evidence is there in the passage about the effect of Daniel’s prayer on this unseen spiritual battle?
  8. Note that Daniel does not directly fight with the satanic forces referred to (the prince of the Persian kingdom, v.13, “the prince of Persia,…the prince of Greece” v.20,)?
  9. Some times we find it hard to see how God can be at work in world events.  How does what the man (or angel) says in the passage help us to understand God’s role in human history?
  10. Whatever Daniel prayed about, in some mysterious way it influenced both what happened in the spiritual realm and in history.  When do you struggle over what to pray?
  11. While we will not always understand what to pray for, how can we try to align our prayers to God’s desires? 

 Ask God to help you pray more and more in ways that reflect whats—that His will would be done, and His Kingdom will come.

 

Now or Later:

Decide on two or three world situations that you can pray about.  Try and pray about them regularly, especially for people at the heart of them.
