Daniel 9:1-19

Today’s Reading is Daniel 9:1-19.
Enter the Bible notes:
“Daniel’s prayer provides a fine model of supplication. Daniel petitions God to act for God’s own sake (9:17), out of God’s mercy (9:18), and out of regard for the people and city with whom God has identified (9:19). In a sense, God’s reputation is on the line, because God has attached God’s own name to Israel. However, Daniel has no room for petitioning on the basis of Israel’s righteousness. Guilt leads to confession of sins but does not preclude petitioning for changed conditions.”
