“10 Now when Daniel knew that the document was signed, he entered his house (now in his roof chamber he had windows open toward Jerusalem); and he continued kneeling on his knees three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God, [h]as he had been doing previously.”
I’m always looking for different ways to connect with God more based on the actions I see other people did in scripture. Today I’m taking notice of Daniel’s actions in reverence to God. He would kneel on his knees to God three times a day, praying and giving thanks. Some suggest this is reflective of the three hours of prayer that Jews would observe morning, noon, and evening. I don’t know for sure about that, but I do find this exercise of prayer and giving thanks to God 3 times a day intriguing. In being intrigued, I’m going to start practicing this daily. I’m not suggesting this as something to be obeyed as there’s no instruction given to pray in this way, and of course obviously not everyone can physically do this. I’m just offering this as a possible way of enhancing your connection with God. After all, Daniel was thrown into a lion’s den after doing this when a law banned him from petitioning anyone other than the king, and he ended up surviving.
Peace to you all in Christ.

I have one of these and it provides a lot of background information on Bible verses and the Bible in general.
