The God Who Hears

MESSAGE - Pastor Stephen Sprague

Ordinary Worship of God

The God Who Hears

  • The Desire of Daniel
  • The Discipline of Daniel
  • The Delight of Daniel 

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Daniel 9:1-19 What stands out to you from this passage? 2. After reading Daniel’s prayer in Daniel 9, consider Daniel’s actions that led to his being thrown in the lion’s den in Daniel 6. What new insights might this give you into the account of Daniel and the lion’s den?
  2. Focus on verses 16-19. What motivates Daniel’s prayer and how should that motivate our own prayer life?
  3. How can the idea of Desire, Discipline and Delight motivate and equip us to pursue lives of more consistent and fervent prayer than that of mere guilt and obligation?
  4. How does praying scripture enrich your prayer life? In what ways can you incorporate various scriptures in your prayers (including Daniel 9!) to help you pray? 

Memory Verse of the Week:

Daniel 9:19  O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.  (ESV)
