21 Days of Prayer Devotional
Day 18
Andrew Chalmers / Daniel 9:20-21


While I was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and making my request to the Lord my God for His holy hill– while I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the man I had seen in an earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice. (NIV)

Thought of the day

Like Daniel, when we sincerely pray to God, sometimes angels are released on assignment to do the bidding of the Lord.

Questions to ponder

-Was there ever a time you felt there was angelic activity as you were praying? How did this effect your faith in the Lord?

-Are there any other passages in the Bible you can read today about angels being activated through prayer?

-What are those passages? When can you read them, today?


I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
