Daniel 6

This is the story where Daniel is thrown in to the lions pit by schemers. The schemers had tricked the new king into signing into law that for 30 days, no one was to worship anyone but the king. The penalty was death and the king could not nullify the law. But this did not deter Daniel from his regularly praying to God and that is what the wicked men wanted to see. But little did they realize that this would lead to their destruction!

Daniel prays toward Jerusalem:

Daniel in the lion’s pit:

God sends his angel and keeps Daniel from harm. The king has the schemers thrown to the lions. The miraculous delivery of Daniel impresses upon the king that Daniel’s God is to be feared in the kingdom.
