Does God answer this kind of prayer? Absolutely! Look at
what the brother of Jesus wrote.
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for
each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a
righteous man is powerful and effective (James 5:16).
Daniel had not even finished praying when the answer
arrived. Now that is powerful and effective praying!
Judging by the length of Danielís prayer, it took less
than five minutes for Gabriel to come from Godís throne in
heaven. The moment we pray, the Spirit intercedes for us
in accordance with Godís will (Romans 8:26-27).
Daniel was given a taste of millennial blessing:
ďBefore they call I will answer; while they are still
speaking I will hearĒ (Isaiah 65:24). Gabriel arrives to
give understanding to Daniel because the prophet was held
in high esteem by God.
