Just imagine how you would react if a law was passed forcing you to violate the way you think in regards to something you know God has clearly spoken on. Daniel found himself in this same situation. After King Darius had issued a decree forbidding anyone from worshipping or praying to anyone but him-which lead to threat of being thrown in a den for lunch to hungry lions.
At this point, Daniel had much to be concerned with, and in the midst of being helpless to change the law, he did the one thing he could: he prayed. When he first learned of the law, he prayed three times a day in his room to God who could save him and keep him serving Him faithfully.
So much is happening in our culture today that can even make a man of God move to anger, even fear. That is in no way shape or form a bad thing, if the emotions of the individual lead him to prayer.
But when Daniel learned that the law had been signed, he went home and knelt down as usual in his upstairs room, with it’s windows open toward Jerusalem. He prayed three times a day, just as he had always done, giving thanks to God. Daniel 6:10 NLT
