Daniel 2:19 “Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.”
Daniel is having a problem here. King Nebuchadnezzar has said that he will kill all the wise men in Babylon if they cannot tell him his dream and the interpretation of it. Daniel asked the king for more time, and he and his friends begin to pray for the dream and the interpretation. When God answers his prayer, he praises and blesses God for the answer. Not only did Daniel bless God for answering his prayer, the Bible tells us exactly what he said in the next three verses. Too often we pray and ask God for things, and when He answers our pray, we forget to praise Him for it. Praise should be one of the things that we do when we pray. Why do we so often forget to praise Him when he answers our prayer? Do we like when we do things for others and they do not thank us for it? Don't forget all of the answers to prayer that God has given to us, and praise him for them.
