Daniel 12:9

Go your way, Daniel, for the words are to remain secret and sealed until the time of the end (NRSV).

Daniel 8

Found here.

A key statement from the commentary: Some Jews and Christians have read this cryptic language, “time of the end,” to refer to the end of the world; but others believe the context points to the “time of the end” of the exile of God and His people from the full and final restoration of temple worship in Jerusalem.

Daniel 9:3-5

So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes.

I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed:

Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws (NIV).

Daniel’s Habit

I find Daniel’s unwillingness to pray privately in Daniel 6 fascinating.

He knew he’d be thrown to the lions.

But he stuck to his regular habit of praying in front of his windows anyway.

I wonder if he was really several steps ahead of his adversaries and sensed that his God would save him from the lions.

This is one of the best reminders in the Bible that prayer really does make a difference.

Achilles’ Heel

What is my Achilles’ Heel? The thing that I’m unable to give up, even if it costs me dearly?

For Daniel, it was his faith and obedience to God.

Amazing.
