    Osaze. In your writing I noticed that you capitalized Daniel's name but every time you mentioned GOD you put the "G" in lower case. GOD is the name of our heavenly FATHER and should have the respect when HE is mentioned.
  • Osaze
    In the scripture psalms 34:4 I sought the Lord and he delivered me from my fear. so in anything in life all any challenges you have to seek god first so that you can be wrong and fearful because without him you can overcome we can overcome anything god is good and faithful and I pray to seek is wisdom and understanding and also is power in my life so that I can serve him. Prayer before I sleep O Lord as i about to sleep guard me from the evil once as you guard Daniel over is enemies and wake up with your blessings amen.

    Mark 11:23 "For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith." The reason for the Lord saying this is for our faith in Him to be genuine; not because He scrutinizes, but proves us by Truth.
  • Cephas
    I will praise thy name continually, and will sing praises with thanksgiving and so my prayer was heard: For thou savedst me from destruction, and deliveredst me from the evil time: therefore will I give thanks, and praise thee, and bless they name, O Lord. Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
