“Praise be to the name of God forever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers: You have given me wisdom and power. You have made known to me what we asked of you. You have made known to us the dream of the king. ” Daniel 2:20-23
We are memorizing this in our Bible study. Daniel is offering praise to God for revealing Nebuchadnezzar’s dream so that Daniel can explain it, thereby saving his own life and the lives of the other wise men in Babylon. The underlined portions can be personalized so we can offer this prayer as our own.
