are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we
serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from
your power, Your Majesty. But even if He doesn’t,
Your Majesty can be sure that we will never serve
your gods or worship the gold statue you have set
Many of us have seen the Lord intervene
so many times at the last moment to turn situations round that we
may almost come to regard this as being “normal.” What we cannot
afford to do is to make a doctrine out of our experiences. There is
nothing automatic about the Lord’s intervention. Mark Stibbe reminds
us that Daniel’s brave young friends had four things to say about
the Lord’s ability to rescue them:
declare that You can
We believe that You will
We recognise that know You might not – but
We pray that You do!18
As we hold these paradoxes in
balance, pray along these lines for people who are facing a
Lord, we declare that nothing is too
hard for You;
You have the power to heal and the power to rescue.
We pray right now that You would touch and release. . . (Name the
person who comes to mind)
Should You choose not to,
help them to keep worshipping You.
May they be so covered in the glory of Your presence
that they experience Your Heavenly comfort today.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

After our ministry team broke up in 1985, the Lord confirmed to Ros
that I was going to find this hard to handle. . .
