This morning, consider the prayers of Daniel 9:4-5. “I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed and said, “Alas, O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments, we have sinned, committed iniquity, acted wickedly and rebelled, even turning aside from Your commandments and ordinances.” (Daniel 9:4–5, NASB95) It all begins with repentance. Daniel turned away not only from his own sin, but stood in the gap as an intercessor for his people and took his stand on the character of God. This morning take time to worship God for his character, and to intercede with repentance. Let us pray that we will turn away from our personal and corporate sin and truly love and honor God.
