Dan 6:16 Then the king commanded, and Daniel was brought and cast into the den of lions. The king declared to Daniel, “May your God, whom you serve continually, deliver you!”
The people orchestrating this move knew that it would make it impossible even for the king to void or nullify it once signed into law. It was binding. King Darius being fond of Daniel tried legally by all means to rescue him but there was no way out and Daniel was cast into the lion’s den. One thing the king said to him, “May your God, whom you serve continuously, deliver you!” Daniel had to trust the God he had continuously served to preserve him in his hour of need, and it must have been encouraging to hear it from the king who took notice of his lifestyle.
Even able men like doctors fall short to rescue but as I have heard many encourage their patients to have faith in their God to bring through where they fall short. Earlier prayers stored will preserve you in the days of trouble.We must be a people who continuously pray, others will take notice to build faith in them. 2Chr 16:9 “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him…”
