Daniel responds to the words of Jeremiah.
- Despite rampant idolatry all around him, Daniel continues to seek God and do what is right, even if it cost him his life.
Daniel’s prayer of repentance is an earnest plea to God on behalf of everyone.
- · We need to repent.
- It’s often easy for us to make excuses or shift the blame. But true repentance, like Daniel’s, requires accepting responsibility.
We must fall heavily upon the grace and love of God and trust:
that God will hear us,
that God will forgive us,
and that God will heal us
with God’s unending love and grace.
