O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act!

Daniel 8:15-9:19; 1 John 2:28-3:10; Proverbs 29:10-18

There is real urgency about Daniel’s prayer: “O Lord, look with favour on Your desolate sanctuary … O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act!” (Daniel 9:17,19). We do need to pray with urgency. There are many who seek to lead us astray (1 John 3:7) – “Bloodthirsty men hate a man of integrity and seek to kill the upright” (Proverbs 29:10). Who can help us in this situation? – Only the Lord: “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work” (1 John 3:8). He alone will give us strength to “continue in Him, so that when He appears we may be confident and unashamed before Him at His Coming” (1 John 2:28).
