Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.
-Daniel humbled himself, prayed & fasted but his prayer was withheld by principalities who caused a delay for the twenty one days. The angel who went to minister to him was withheld by the prince of Persia, the head of principalities & his agents (kings of Persia ). As Daniel persisted in prayer, Archangel Michael, the chief angel of war intervened & helped him. We note that our fight is not against flesh & blood, but principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this age & spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Eph 6:12). When we make the Lord our refuge & dwelling place, He gives angels charge over us to protect us from all danger (Psa 91:9-12), who are ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation (Heb 1:14).
Lord our Father, You are our refuge & strength, we praise You & worship You. We rebuke all the plans of the evil one in our lives & place all our needs before You, hear & answer our prayers. All power & authority belongs to You Lord, we place our trust is in You, take charge of our lives, families & nation. We give You thanks always. Amen
