A Daniel call concerning the ‘hinge years’ of 2014, 2015‏

Från Rick Riding Succat Hallel, Jerusalem:

In our daily lives we all face the challenge of seeking to hear the voice of the Lord in order to fulfill our destiny, and not just allowing ourselves to be ruled by “the tyranny of the urgent” (1).  In the same way, we as prayer leaders must beware to not just pray into “the tyranny of the urgent,” and we must not just use a shotgun approach in this era of information overload.

Rather than just praying in response to the flood of news coming our way, we need to learn to enter into the “council of the Lord” like Daniel, one of the greatest intercessors of the Bible.  Daniel was a man who understood the times and the seasons. Daniel appealed to the Lord for revelation and was given that revelation in a way that caused kings to seek his counsel.  He glorified His God, the God of Israel, as the One who “changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness” (Daniel 2:21, 22 NIV).

I, and many others, see a convergence of three factors which, taken together, would seem to say that the Lord is drawing our attention to be alert and seeking His counsel as to how we should pray in these “hinge years” of 2014/2015."
