  1. Today, prayer is the lifeline in the Lord’s recovery. The more Satan tries to frustrate our prayer, the more we should pray.
    O Lord Jesus, be our steadfastness and perseverance to pray for Your recovery all over the earth!

  2. I love these four words: “regardless of the number.” It didn’t matter that God only had four overcomers in Babylon, even with just these four God was able to boast to and defeat Satan.
    Today, God needs overcomers, and regardless of the number, if there are overcomers standing on the ground of the Church God will be happy and pleased.

  3. “Today, prayer is the lifeline in the Lord’s recovery. The more Satan tries to frustrate our prayer, the more we should pray.”

  4. “God’s move is like a train which must have rails for its move. Man’s prayers are like the rails which pave the way for God’s move to go on. There is no other way to bring God’s economy into fullness and into fulfillment except by prayer. This is the inner secret of this chapter.”

    “Today, prayer is the lifeline in the Lord’s recovery.”

    I am very encouraged by this portion. I am freshly reminded of the importance of prayer. God carries out His will through our prayer. We should pray for His economy, for the building up of His Body, and for the kingdom gospel to be preached.

  5. “Today, prayer is the lifeline in the Lord’s recovery. The more Satan tries to frustrate our prayer, the more we should pray.”

    I am so encouraged to pray faithfully for God’s move. Sometimes I loose heart in prayer for certain matters or persons because I don’t see any changes outwardly. But no matter if the answer is fast or slow, we need to be watchmen that remind the Lord faithfully, be men of prayers that lay the track for the carrying out of God’s economy.
    O Lord! Make us Daniels, men of prayer to bring in Your kingdom!

  6. Daniel 6:10 “three times daily he knelt on his knees and prayed and gave thanks before his God, because he had always done so previously”

    I like this point that “he had always done so previously.” Daniel had a habit of praying at set times. What a wonderful pattern for us.
