Study Questions

Read Daniel 10

1. Describe a time in your life when you were spiritually, physically, and emotionally exhausted. How did God become more or less real to you during that time?

2. Consider Daniel 10:2, 8, 10, 15, 16-17. What condition was Daniel in while he sought the Lord?

3. Consider Daniel 10:12 and James 4:6-10. Why is our posture before God in prayer critical? What posture (physically and spiritually) do you typically take in prayer? How is it similar or different than Daniel's?

4. Consider Daniel 10:5, 9, 10-11, 16, 18. How did God tenderly minister to Daniel while he was praying?

5. The Angel repeatedly refers to Daniel as God's "greatly beloved" (see 9:23, 10:19). Why is it so important to remember God's love for us while praying? What is the significance of the Angel's command to "Fear Not" (See 1 John 4:18)

6. How does God minister to us through our prayers today (see Romans 8:12-17, 26-27)?

7. Read 2 Corinthians 12:10. How does Paul's experience in prayer parallel Daniels? Did God answer Paul's "exact" prayer? How does God minister to us in weakness? What does Paul understand about the danger of pride and its relationship to prayer?

8. Where do you most need to experience God's strengthening in your life? Spend time praying.


1. When was a time when you wanted to quit something? Why did you want to quit?

2. Read Daniel 10:8. When is a time when you had no strength left?

3. Sometimes we feel like we cannot keep doing good things. It gets hard. We get tired. It's not easy. Read Isaiah2:9. How does it say we will fly? How will we run? How will we walk? Who helps us do that?

CHALLENGE: Count how many jumping jacks you can do without a break? Do jumping Jacks tomorrow and challenge yourself to do more than you did the day before. Did you succeed? Sometimes we do not think we can do something. But when God is helping us, we have His strength to get us through.
