Being the Daniels of Today as Men of Prayer having an Excellent Spirit


Daniel was a man of prayer with an excellent spirit, a man fearing God, honoring God, exalting God, and living under God’s rule in the reality of the kingdom of the heavens, the ruling of the heavens.What would people say about you after they get to know you? Will they say something like, “He is a good brother”, or “he’s an intelligent man”, or, “I like him, he’s nice”….?

About Daniel the kings and the people said, He has an excellent spirit! Wow! Daniel prayed continually, and he exercised his spirit to such an extent that it wasn’t his intelligence, his knowledge, his words, or anything else that stood out – it was his excellent spirit!

Daniel was a person who was always praying, even at the risk of his life. Because he was such a praying person, the kings (Nebuchadnezzar, Darius, and Belteshazzar) spoke of him as “having an excellent spirit”.

Daniel had an excellent spirit because he had an exercised spirit, a spirit that always prayed to His God. He feared God, honored God, and exalted God, being always under the rule of the heavens by the God of the heavens (Dan. 6:10; 9:1-4, 17; 5:12, 14; 6:3; 5:22-23; 4:25-26, 32).

Even when the jealous rulers tricked the king into signing a decree that no one should pray to his god but to the king for 30 days, Daniel went to his upper room, opened his windows toward Jerusalem, and prayed three times “because he had always done so previously” (Dan. 6:10).

Satan hates our prayer life and he will raise up all kinds of things and persons to stop and frustrate us from praying. We need to realize that we can offer God our best cooperation and coordination through prayer, and therefore we should keep our prayer time with the Lord every day.
