We can learn from Daniel that confession of sin is an important part of being right before God. When you pray today, ask God to forgive you for your sins. Go ahead and list them before God as you seek forgiveness.
I went on praying and confessing my sin and the sin of my people, pleading with the Lord my God for Jerusalem, his holy mountain. -v20
