Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days (Dan 6:10).
Jealous of Daniel for his position of authority, men of Babylon sought a charge against Daniel. They had the king issue a decree that no god or man could be petitioned for 30 days except for the king. Daniel always prayed to God every day. He did not try to hide it since he left the window open for any outside to see. Would we have such courage to defy our government if challenged to choose between our God or serving man? Daniel was consistent. This was his custom since early days. Are we consistent? Do you pray every day? Do you allow anything to hinder your prayers? Do you thank God or do you only ask for things? Daniel was on his knees. Do you ever pray on your knees?
