The Secret Of Daniel's Success
Daniel 9
Two of the most noticeable things about Daniel are that he navigated life in exile brilliantly and that he had a disciplined, faith filled prayer life. In Daniel 9, we zoom in on what that prayer life looked like and get practical as to how we can order our private, devotional lives to be like Daniel.

In today’s chapter, we see God bring about an incredible change in the King of Babylon. But it was only possible because one of his people chose to participate in Babylon. Jonny opens up the amazing story we find in Daniel 4 and asks what we can learn from the incredible balancing act that Daniel plays as he faithfully serves God at the centre of Babylonian culture.
