God gives rulers their power

Daniel 2:17-23

17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions: 18 That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. 19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven. 20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: 21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: 22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. 23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.

DAILY PRAYER

Heavenly Father, we pray that you would give us godly leaders who worship you, acknowledge your ways and seek your wisdom in all judgments. We also pray that you would give us godly friends and surround us with a great cloud of witnesses who strengthen us in our Christian walk, will help us in our time of need, and bring us companionship and laughter and joy. We pray that you would grant us wisdom and discernment so that we may live in peace in this wicked and perverse world.
