DANIEL: The Man Who Saved His Nation Through Prayer – Part 1
Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself. He began to maintain his undivided devotion to God.

Note that Daniel rose to great levels of power under four emperors: Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar, Darius, and Cyrus. He became what we would call a prime minister.
