“Don’t be afraid Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before you God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian Kingdom resisted me 21 days.” -Daniel 10:12. Daniel had been fasting and praying for weeks without seeing a response. After 21 days an angelic being appeared to him and told him the delay; a spiritual battle was being waged in the heavens. Answers to our prayers may be hindered by unseen obstacles but God has promised to hear our prayers when we come to Him in faith! We need to remember that Satan may throw obstacles in the way of our receiving the answers God has sent. What should we do? Continue to pray!
“The prayers of a righteous man or woman are powerful and effective!” -James 5:16
