Daniel 6: 19-20 ” At the first light of dawn, the King got up and hurried to the lions’ den. When he came near the den, he called to Daniel in an anguished voice, ‘Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God , whom you serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?’ “

King Darius had spent a sleepless night after being tricked by his administrators and satraps into throwing Daniel into the lions’ den.  The King had tried to rescue Daniel, but his decree stood and couldn’t be repealed.  So here he was at first light, yelling for a response from Daniel.  Did the King really imagine that Daniel had survived the night…was he hoping beyond hope…or had Daniel’s trust in God been so very evident that King Darius actually  believed it was possible?
