“O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments…O Lord, righteousness belongeth to Thee…. To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness…for the Lordour God is righteous in all the works which He does….” – Daniel 9: 4, 7, 9, 14
When you pray, is it with a clear picture in mind of the might and power, the holiness of the One to Whom you are addressing your prayer?
This passage reveals the character of God, His greatness, His awe, His power, righteousness and mercy. We must see this about the great heart of our God: God is a God of righteousness, judgment, and justice, but God had rather show mercy than send judgment.
It is impossible to see who our great God is in a time of crisis and not want to pray. When you see the character and nature of God, you can hardly keep from praying! God says, “The instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, to pull down, and to destroy it, if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it.” (Jeremiah 18:7-8)
