Often we are quick to say ‘I’m sorry’ but there is no depth to it. Daniel is different in this chapter. He approaches God in prayer, humbly and with a broken heart. He identifies with his people and their failings. Yet his prayer is more than a litany of failure. It was an appeal for more grace. Grace to listen to the prayers of the people; grace to restore the land; grace to rebuild the city and temple. David can make his appeal for grace crying, ‘We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy.’ This same grace and mercy Daniel appeals for, is the same grace and mercy that it ours, through Jesus Christ.
