Day 21

Weekly Truth

from the Daniel reading plan


Daniel 9:17-18

BY She Reads Truth

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the good news of Jesus with us wherever we go.

For our final week, we will finish memorizing the last verse in this passage from Daniel. Here, the prophet expresses humility before God and seeks His compassion. 

Write the passage out by hand, say it aloud, or test your knowledge with a friend.

Therefore, our God, hear the prayer and the petitions of your servant. Make your face shine on your desolate sanctuary for the Lord’s sake. Listen closely, my God, and hear. Open your eyes and see our desolations and the city that bears your name. For we are not presenting our petitions before you based on our righteous acts, but based on your abundant compassion.
—Daniel 9:17–18

    I have a few days I need to catch up on still but I’m kinda proud I finally stuck with a devotion! I’ve been doing an older Christmas advent one as well because I never finish those and I’m so excited for the Christmas season… and maybe by Christmas I’ll have it done. ADHD brain… but I’m on the right track I think to making this a habit I can stick with!

    I have enjoyed working through this study, even though I kind of did it in double time. This week has been a rollercoaster of a week. First I hit my head hard enough that I still feel it 6 days after the fact. Next was a preliminary diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy with an unknown source. We will have to do more testing on that to see if we can pin it down. I’ve wrapped up my week with a workday that I wouldn’t wish on anyone (retail can be very unfulfilling sometimes). In the midst of it all, God has been beside me. He’s there through all the headaches (literal and figurative), and emotional ups and downs. I’ve enjoyed reading everyone’s posts and look forward to our next study together, taking time to really digest the Word as we go through.

    This was a great study. Daniel was what I needed right now. I have been going through some hard times and I’m ready to put them behind me. I can’t wait to start the next one Proverbs. It will be upbeat. It will be different than Ecclesiastes. Solomon wrote it at the beginning of his reign, before he married all of his different wives.
    Lord, help me to continue to be compassionate to those around me. Help me to show compassion to those who test me and who are my enemies. Remind me Your compassion extends to all peoples. Lord, watch over all who need Your help and guidance. Be with those who are on hard times. I praise Your name and call You my Almighty Father. Amen.
