Casual Prayer???

battle_of_angels_by_owll1
Here is an interesting tidbit from the book of Daniel, chapter 10:
 
Daniel 10:13, “But for twenty-one days the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia blocked my way. Then Michael, one of the archangels, came to help me, and I left him there with the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia.”
 
Boy, would I love to see the film clips of that battle! There also seems to be a correlation between Daniel’s time of self-denial and prayer in verse 3 of this chapter and the duration of the battle. But I wonder …  Why did God allow such a conflict? He certainly could have blasted away at any demonic opposition which dared raise its head! Shazam! I think it shows the need for persistent prayer (Luke 18:1). In any event, obviously prayer has reverberations way beyond what we see here on earth. I have to wonder … Did Daniel ever pray casually again after learning about this?  I think not …
