Daniel 9:1 - 19. A MODEL OF PRAYER.

1. The Consideration of His Prayer. He had forethought & preparation. v.2 In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. 3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: His Prayer Was : - (a) Scriptural I Daniel understood by books (b) Seasonal he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem (c) Spiritual 3 And I set my face unto the Lord God (d) Sacrifcial to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:

2. The Concentration of His Prayer. He studied the history of his people. Their Neglect Of : - (a) God's Will Judgement Not God's Fault 4 ¶ And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; (b) God's Way 5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments: (c) God's Word 6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

3. The Consecration of His Prayer. It was excited by zeal for God's glory. 17 Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake. Note The : - (a) Purity Of His Praying hear the prayer of thy servant, (b) Purpose Of His Praying and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, (c) Power Of His Praying for the Lord’s sake.

4. The Condescension of His Prayer 18 O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies. Daniel's Conception Of : - (a) Sovereignty O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes (b) Sympathy and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: (c) Sufficency for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.

Prayer makes the darkest cloud withdraw,

Prayer mounts the ladder Jacob saw,

Gives exercise to faith and love,

Brings every blessing from above.

Restraining prayer, we cease to fight;

Prayer makes the Christian armour bright;

And Satan trembles when he sees

The weakest saint upon his knees.

5. The Conviction of His Prayer 19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name. There Is : - (a) Perception with God O Lord, hear (b) Pardon with God O Lord, forgive (c) Power with God O Lord, hearken and do

Nicely put, yet not a sermon by a large margin. This should be in the ' sermonette' venue here.
