Going through life can be a daunting task. We learn so many things that it can be mind-boggling when looked at as a whole.

One of the most important learning experiences is when to ask for help. I find it is better to ask for help whenever I need to. I cannot know everything, nor can I understand all things. Even Daniel in all his wisdom and knowledge, asked God for help in prayer. See Daniel 6:11. His troubles were grander than ours, so he asked God.

We are not put into “lion’s den” situations like Daniel was, yet we can use prayer to get insight as to the proper course or who to help us.

Daniel even went to God three times a day to gain that help. See Daniel 6:10. The prayers also included thanks. So his prayers for help had thanks added in the prayer realizing God’s power.

What do we do when we need help? Do we go to God in prayer? How many times do we go to God in prayer? Do we thank God for the opportunity to pray?
