The supervisors, assistant governors, governors, the people who advise you, and the captains of the soldiers have all agreed that you should make a new law for everyone to obey: For the next thirty days no one should pray to any god or human except to you, O king.Anyone who doesn't obey will be thrown into the lions' den.
— Daniel 6:7 NCV
Lord, Daniel disobeyed an evil, human-made law that violated Your commands — he continued to pray three times a day to You rather than praying to another man or false god. Thank You for his courageous example. Thank you for honoring him by closing the mouths of the lions when Daniel faced the consequences. Grant me discernment to know when the same kind of problem confronts me. Bless me with the courage to do the right thing when the moment of my challenge comes. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
