Get Your Prayer Support Lined Up Now
By Rick Warren 

“Then Daniel went home and told his friends Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah what had happened. He urged them to ask the God of heaven to show them his mercy by telling them the secret, so they would not be executed along with the other wise men of Babylon” (Daniel 2:17-18 NLT).

God always tests you before he blesses you. 

Sometimes his tests come through people who ask you to do something impossible, like a boss who gives you a project with an unreasonable deadline.

When this happens, first you refuse to panic so you can focus on getting more information, and then you ask for more time.

Next, you enlist prayer support from your friends. 

The Bible says, “Then Daniel went home and told his friends Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah what had happened. He urged them to ask the God of heaven to show them his mercy by telling them the secret, so they would not be executed along with the other wise men of Babylon” (Daniel 2:17-18 NLT).

Daniel realized this was a big request. The kingdom hung in the balance. The king wasn’t thinking clearly. He was about to kill everyone on his court! So Daniel got his prayer team going.

You don’t need a lot of people as part of your prayer team. But you do need four or five friends who will pray with you in times just like these.
