Have you ever wondered what was happening when it seems that prayer is unanswered? Why is God not answering my request? Why does it seem there is a delay in a response? These are questions we can frequently consider when we have been diligently praying and do not seem to see a response from God. Daniel 10 helps us learn about God and prayer because Daniel is going to experience the same delay in answered prayer like we experience. We should be interested that Daniel’s prayer is delayed in being answered because we know that Daniel is faithful and greatly loved by God (Daniel 9:23). Further, we saw God immediately answer Daniel’s prayer in chapter 9. We were told at the moment Daniel began to pray, God sent an answer to him (9:23). But this time the answer to prayer is delayed. What happened? Why are prayer’s answers delayed?
