Hindered Prayer, Delayed Answers
Dan 10:12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
Dan 10:13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
God heard Daniel's prayers immediately. God dispatched an answer, in the form of a vision, by this bright and shining figure, some angelic being. However, the wicked one hindered his progress toward Daniel, thus he enlisted the help of heaven's warring archangel, Michael. A 21 day battle ensued until finally, the answer came through.
We are reminded that it is not only flesh and blood that we are doing battle with, but principalities, powers and rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places. (Eph 6:12)
So, keep on praying, the answer's on its way!
