Daniel 9:18 O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.
As Daniel asks God to answer his prayer he says not because of what we have done but because of God’s great mercy.
Do we understand that God answers prayer because He is good not because we deserve it. Have you considered that you do not deserve God’s blessings or His answers to our prayers.
Do you ever feel like God owes you something? Do you ever feel like God should treat you better than He is? Just remember it is not because of us but because of His great mercies.
