Woman of Revelation 12 (Flees to the Wilderness)

“And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman

And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness”

Revelation 12:1, 14

“FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS”

Matthew 24:16

.

“When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:” Matthew 24:15, 16 

.

So the above verse is a warning to all those who are living over there in Palestine… “Flee to the mountains!”. And this photo of the mountains of Judea just might be a good place to flee to. But with today’s tracking devices, it probably wouldn’t be too long until they found you.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Panorama_from_beth_meir_5.jpg

.

But does this passage have a message for us Christians who are scattered elsewhere around the world?

.

Listen once again…

.

“When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:” Matthew 24:15, 16 

.

Notice it says in the above verse, “whoso reads, let him understand”. So there needs to be an understanding of this complex issue. There needs not only to be an understanding of the Abomination of Desolation, but also an understanding of just what it means to, “flee”.

“NOT IN WINTER”eagle ridge ursa major stars only

.

“But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains…And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.” Mark 13:14, 18

.

 So just what does this above passage mean? And why does it say that we should pray that our, “flight be not in the winter”?

.

Well there is no shortage of speculation as to the meaning of this passage. Many even assign this warning to only the literal Jews. Well, this would make sense, seeing that it speaks of fleeing Jerusalem.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

THE AUTHOR HAS SHOWN UP

.

Fortunately, there needs to be no speculation about what it means. Tsummer w/woman & doveshe Author of the Book has decided to show us just exactly who it is that must flee; and exactly where it is we must flee to; and exactly what it is that we must flee from! Because the Author of the Book has written the answer in none other places but in the very heavens! In the very night skies!

.

You see, God has placed the major constellations in such a way, that they tell the marvelous Gospel story in pictures. And a key part of this heavenly phenomena is this Revelation 12 Woman, as she appears to being fleeing. It’s just that we’ve been so conditioned to look at these major constellations in a certain way, that we have not seen them the way that God originally intended.

SIGNIFICANCE OF WINTER

.

But for those who do begin to see these Bible constellations, there is a very interestiConstellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14ng aspect to this: the timing is very revealing. You see, this constellation of this fleeing woman, appears in winter.

.

So what’s the significance of this?

.

You see, this above passage says… “And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.” And so, God is telling us that we will have to make our flight in winter. So in other words, we didn’t pray; or we didn’t pray enough!

.

But the good news is just this: the place where we must flee to, is also revealed. And it is a place where each and every one of us can get to.

.

And this article reveals all these things. So please read and find the answers to these puzzles.

HEAVENLY MOUNTAINSRevelation 12 Woman with Eagle Wings

.

Well, as just stated, the Lord has created a constellation which shows a woman fleeing. It is called the Revelation 12 Woman Constellation, also known as Ursa Major or The Big Dipper. 

.

So if we explore this constellation in the light of the Bible, there can be a wealth of information discovered on this very topic. So come along and dig into this study. And after reading about this heavenly revelation, you just might find yourself fleeing to the mountains. And maybe, just maybe, there are some much better mountains to flee to, than the ones in the above photo of Judea! Mountains in which you can hide, where tracking devices and black helicopters are useless against you!

This above passage is a very condensed version of Revelation, Ch. 12. (To read entire Chapter 12, click here)

THESE SIGNS ARE MENTIONED

.

From time to time, the Book of Revelation mentions stars. But when we get to Revelation Chapter 12, it speaks of two “great signs in heaven”. First, it speaks of the sign in heaven of a woman with child. Then it speaks of the sign in heaven of a great red dragon, with a tail that sweeps one-third of the stars and casts these stars down to the earth. So we get the sense that this phenomenon that the Apostle John was seeing, was closely intertwined with the starry host of the heavens. And these two signs in heaven, a woman, and a dragon, are a big part of this website, Signs Of Heaven.winter four constellations

.

And so this phenomenon that the Apostle John was seeing, was closely intertwined with the starry host of the heavens.

.

What really gives validity to this idea, is that God created the Universe in such a way, that if one looks at the major constellations, then this Revelation 12 scenario can be seen. So please read on. And if you really want to see this heavenly battle, you just might. It will take some real effort on your part. But through prayer, faith, and study of the site, God may just graciously open your eyes to see this amazing story written on the heavenly scroll above. But don’t wait! This heavenly scroll will soon be rolled up, just as it is written… “And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together;” Revelation 6:14

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth isThe Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the  Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation  head is of  Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.

FLEEING WOMAN OF REVELATION 12…

“And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly intConstellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14o the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.  And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:14, 15. So this Revelation 12 Woman Constellation gives a heavenly portrait of a woman fleeing from the Dragon, who is spewing water in her pathway.

.

The sketch to the right is “Valley of Decision” Constellation, the Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation, and the Dragon Constellation. This is a concept sketch. These three constellations are not in this position in the night sky. So please don’t try to find them together like this. All of the other sketches have the constellation in the correct position, unless otherwise noted. For locations of each of these Constellations, please go to the article for that particular constellation.

FROM WHERE & TO WHERE DOES SHE FLEE?

.

WOMAN ROTATES THROUGH THE SEASONS…

.

star-chart ursa major summerrThis page is about the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth.  This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies. 

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, nowstar-chart ursa major appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

.

The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights.

SECTION #2

WHO IS SHE FLEEING FROM?

.

.

.

.

.Revelation 12 Woman with Eagle Wings

 “…and the dragon stood before the woman…for to devour her child as soon as it was born…And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of woman of Revelation 12 Flees to Wilderness-www.signsofheaven.orgGod…” Revelation 12:5, 6 

.

Now by winter, this woman has changed into a “fleeing” woman. And if you will go out into the country away from the city lights, you might just see that her upraised arms begin to appear as wings. And she appears to be running, and eventually flying. In this heavenly scenario, this woman is fleeing from the ‘Dragon’ Constellation. However, “fleeing” is mentioned many times in Scripture. It may refer to fleeing from apostate shepherds (John 10:5), brethren or apostate congregations (Psalm 26:5). Or fleeinRevelation 12 Dragon no textg from sin and (1st Cor. 6:18).  Or from enemies. It is likewise speaking of fleeing to the mountains. And as you can see, the Dragon is spewing water out of his mouth. And it is amazing that this water is always going in the direction of the woman. The water stands for false doctrines. False brethren. Persecutions and temptations. See the article on the Dragon for further insight. Click here…”The Dragon”.

SEPARATION FROM WORLD

.

FLEE FROM ENEMIES… “Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.” Psalms 143:9. This verse explains how to flee from your enemies. Flee to God. Trust Him to hide you. Get lost in His Word. Get lost in prayer. Hide in your prayer closet. Rest in His almighty arms.

.http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

This next verse declares that God’s true sheep, will spiritually discern between the voice of God, and the voice of a “stranger”. Listen… “And when He putteth forth His own sheep, He goeth before them, and the sheep follow Him: for they know His voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.” John 10:4

.

Now here’s a verse that sounds as if it’s speaking literally. But for those of us who are not living over there in the land of Palestine, this passage must be understood in a spiritual sense… “But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.” Matt. 10:23. Of course, this verse must be understood spiritually, since the Son of Man’s Coming did not literally happen back then.

FLEE FROM SIN

.

“Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.  I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.” 1 Corinthians 10:14,15

.

From the above verse, it becomes clear that the concept of fleeing, is nPaul the Apostle-Artist-Valentin de Boulogne or Nicolas Tournier- circa 1500sot merely speaking of a literal fleeing. But it is rather a spiritual concept. But why should that surprise anyone? After all, the entire Bible is a spiritual book. Now listen to this next verse, which basically states the same thing as the above verse….

“Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” 2 Timothy 2:22.

.

You cannot literally flee from lusts. But you definitely can avoid them. You can definitely separate from “friends” who might urge you to go with them into questionable places, to do questionable activities. 

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

FLEE COVETOUSNESSWoman of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

But just listen to this next passage about fleeing. This one concerns life choices…. 

.

Listen… “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.” 1 Timothy 6:10,11.

.

Again, to flee from the love of money and covetousness means much, much more than physically running away. But it does have much to do with the choices we make in life. And there definitely is a sense of urgency about the above verse, isn’t there? After all, it says to “flee” these things. It doesn’t say, “walk away from these things”. Very interesting word choice by Paul, wouldn’t you say? 

.

THE DAY OF THE LORD & MYSTERY BABYLON

.

“But when he (John The Baptist) saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?  Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: ” Matt. 3:6-8

.

John The Baptist came with a fiery message for the Old Testament Church. Repent! Flee! John the Baptist by J. Tissot - Wikimedia Commons - US Public DomainFlee from the wrath to come! Do the things equal, consistent with repentance.

.

John’s message was pertinent back then, at the first Coming of Jesus. And John’s message is every much as pertinent today, just prior to Christ’s Second Coming!

.

Listen to this passage from Jeremiah… “Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD’S vengeance; He will render unto her a recompense. Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD’S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed… for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.” Jeremiah  51:6-9

.

This is a somewhat veiled  reference to the apostate Church, and its judgment as “Mystery Babylon”.

CORRUPTING INFLUENCES

.

But here’s another passage from Isaiah… “Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans,” Isaiah 48:20. This world is referred to as Babylon in the New Testament. Even though we can’t leave the world, we can flee from unnecessary temptations, such as TV, radio, and other forms of corrupting influences, which tend to compromise our purity and Christ-likeness.

.

Listen… “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” 1 Corinthians 15:33. And in truth, God’s people are to flee from the Babylon, the world.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

BABYLON TWICE FALLEN

.

But Babylon is twice fallen. There is Babylon the apostate Church, which God’s people must likewise flee from.

.12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days.

Listen to the below passage…

.

“flee out of the midst of Jerusalem…for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction….I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.” Jeremiah 6:1,2.

.

Here we have a more direct reference to the Church-Apostate being called Babylon. Hence, the following verse repeats the saying twice…“Babylon is fallen is fallen.” Revelation 14 & 18: 2. Babylon the world is fallen. But also, Babylon, the apostate Church is fallen.

.

SECTION 3:

WHERE IS SHE FLEEING TO? 

.

.

.

.

.

.

“And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.  And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that heThe Strait Gate is the Narrow Way and the broad way is the Wide Gate might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:14, 15

.

Well, it’s clear that this Woman is fleeing from the Dragon who is spewing water after her. But just where is this woman fleeing to? Revelation 12 says that she flees into the wilderness where she has a place prepared by God. Nevertheless, this constellation is an amalgamation of all that the Bible warns Christians are to flee from. And it is likewise a composite picture of what the Bible says about what or where or who the Christian should be fleeing to.

.

“REVELATION 12 WOMAN & THE NARROW GATE” IN WINTER: This above sketch is how this constellation group appears as you lie on the ground with your head to the west and feet toward the east (obviously, these two gates gave been embellished to present the concept of the Narrow & Wide Gates in the Bible). The two stars on the Narrow Gate are the two bright stars, Castor and Pollux, which comprise part of Orion The Reaper‘s Sickle. The two stars on the Wide gate are the two brightest stars on the Dragon’s Wave of Water.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“THY SISTER SODOM”…

Ezekiel 16:49…

.

Listen to this next “fleeing” verse… “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he thahttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpgt committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.” 1st Corinthians 6:18

.

 Matthew 24 states, “When ye shall see the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place, as spoken of by Daniel the prophet, then let them which in Judea flee to the mountains.” This passage is a veiled reference back to Lot and how he was commanded to flee from Sodom on the morning of her destruction. In the Old Testament, God compared apostate Jerusalem to Sodom. Lot was told by God to flee to the mountain (Genesis 19:17). But what mountains are we Christians today to flee to? If we read Psalm 125:2, we see that God refers to Himself as “mountains”…

 “As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about His people from henceforth even for ever.” Psalm 125:2

.

.

.

.

GOD IS OUR MOUNTAIN

.

 “They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about His people from henceforth even for ever.” Psalm 125:1, 2

.

You can see from the above verse that God is referring to Himself as “mountains”. So what mountain do we flee to? To God. But it also refers to fleeing to Mt Zion“They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.”  Psalm 125:1.

.

This verse from Psalms sheds light on this next verse below… And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having His Father’s name written in their foreheads.”  Revelation 4:1woman of Revelation 12 Flees to Wilderness-www.signsofheaven.org

So the previous two verses are both symbolic of the idea of a Christian fleeing to God.

.

This next verse confirms this idea… “And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:20, 21

.

And so, as this above passage reveals, the kingdom of God is within us. So fleeing for refuge, cannot be speaking of literally fleeing to some literal mountain location.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“FLEE TO THE VALLEY OF THE MOUNTAIN”

.

“And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains…”  Zechariah  14:5 (In the Hebrew language, mountains is translated, “Ar” & valley is translated, “Megiddo”.  This is believed to be speaking of Armageddon, the day which is now almost upon us). The Church is to flee from the apostate Church-world, at the very last moments of time in this world.

FLEEING TO MOUNTAINS

.

“Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense.” Song of Solomon 4:6.

.

This verse seems to be speaking of fleeing to your prayer closet and also of having a total trust in the Lord. (prayer symbolized by incense, it would appear)

MOUNT ZION WITHIN

.

“…behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:20, 21 

.

“Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto Thee to hide me.” Psalms 143:9.

.

But Mt. Zion is over there in Israel isn’t it? Well, let’s see what the New Testament has to say about Mt Ziohttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:View_of_Mount_Zion_from_the_Mount_Zion_Hotel_IMG_1578.JPGn…“But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God: Hebrews 12:22. 

.

Oh, so we see that Mt. Zion in the Bible was a representation of God’s heavenly city. This is the mountain that we are commanded to flee to. But how do we flee to a heavenly city?

.

This brings us to another very wonderful and incredible ending to this heavenly parable. And if you go to the article entitled, Woman of Revelation 12…The Narrow Gate & The Wide Gate”,  and study that, “Happily Ever after” ending to this Signs of Heaven story.

WITNESSING IN TRIALS

.

The Woman With Eagle Wings appears to be casting seed as she goes. This would be the precious seed of theWoman-Eagle Wings Gospel. Can  you see the seed coming from both her hands and feet?

.

“He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalms 126:6.  

.

She is casting the seed both from her left hand and from her left foDaniel - Dore - Daniel In The Den Of Lions - www.creationism.org - Public - Domainot. The left hand and left foot being the passive hand and foot, seems to symbolize that our most effective witness is when we’re not even aware that we are witnessing.

.

This reminds us of the following verse from Matthew… “But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth…”  Matt. 6:3.

.

See how this verse applies to this left hand-left foot concept? In the book of Daniel, the point is repeatedly made concerning the captive Hebrews (Daniel and friends), that their Christian witness came not from handing out Bible tracks, or speaking to people about the Lord. But their greatest witness came during their severe trials in which they remained faithful!

.

When God’s people finally come to the point where we realize, that we must flee from every temptation (as far and as fast as possible), is when the church will shine most brightly.

LITERAL FLEEING IN DARK AGES

.

During the Dark Ages, the Church fled to the literal mountains to hide from the apostate church of Europe. But now, in these last days, our only refuge is in a total, total, hiding in our Lord. We must be securely snuggled in His Almighty arms…every moment of every http://www.gutenberg.org/files/18503/18503-h/18503-h.htmday. For if we dare leave His side for a moment (during this time of trouble coming soon) the enemy will be waiting to devour us, or to do as much damage as they possibly can…

“O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire in Bethhaccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction. I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.” Jeremiah 6:1, 2.

.

When God’s people realize, that such passages as this, are merely encoded messages… “are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”, then, and only then can God’s people begin to understand the great message which God has written for His Church, in these last days. The Lord is telling us here, in veiled language, that God’s professed people have become soft and weak, in a time of war. God is telling His true Church to flee from this weak and ineffective apostate church-world! (see Galatians 4:21-26)

In this busy work-a-day world, there are many very interesting things which can occupy one’s time and energy: hobbies, and careers, and entertainments and worries, and habits, to name just a few.

.

But as the child of God devotes his or her life to God, there should be a jealous guarding of one’s own heart… “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23.

.

The Christian wants nothing to get in the way of running that Christian Race.

“AND WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS…

.

LOOK UP, LIFT UP YOUR HEAD”

.

But having said this, there is one hobby which every ‘Noble Berean’ may take up, which only compliments the pursuit of the heavenly Prize.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Astronomy_Amateur_3_V2.jpg

Yes, Signs Of Heaven becomes a wonderfully rewarding hobby which, unlike many less meaningful hobbies, pays off with rich, heavenly rewards. Everlasting rewards!

.

And unlike these people in this photo with equipment, all you need is fairly good vision, and a dark, starry night.

.

And once a person really gets to know these heavenly messengers, it will become very apparent that the message connected with these signs is truly a message to be heeded.

.

Thus will the Christian be able to share this message with others. And there are perhaps many nuances and hidden biblical truths to these signs which have yet to be discovered.

FIRST FIND ORION & 7 STARS

.Orion Constellation

The very first step in finding these many constellations, should be to find the two main constellations: Orion, and the 7 Stars (aka, The Big Dipper).

.

These two constellations represent Christ (Orion), and His Chur7 stars as Crossch (7 Stars).

.

And just as these are the easiest constellations to find, so too, the first place to begin studying the Bible is the Four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John).

.

These four books present Christ and His Church, when He walked the earth, just as Orion and the 7 Stars represent Christ and His Church, as seen up in the heavens.

.

Then, once you are comfortable finding these two constellations, you can begin to locate the next closest constellations, and so on.

ANOTHER HEAVENLY HOBBY: PRAYER-WALKS

.

Now if you’re fortunate enough to be able to go on nightly walks, and you live in an area where you can safely view the stars, here is another Heavenly Hobby which Signs Of Heaven endorses…

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpg

Why not combine star-watching with prayer, as you walk? What a great way to draw closer to God!

.

It cannot be over-stressed, just how wonderful it is to walk under the dark canopy of Heaven, while lifting up one’s heart to our Heavenly Father! There is a closeness to God that cannot be described with words!

.

(And even if you cannot safely do this, you can always do such prayer-walks in the daytime, in a safe place, such as a mall, which is every bit as effective, prayer-wise.

.

And for those who are in confinement, one can view these starry signs on the Internet, or simply listen to Scripture on audio.

.

Either way, all such may enjoy God’s richest blessings at this very time in which God is pouring out all Heaven’s treasures upon anyone willing to forsake all, and follow Jesus!)

THRICE-DAILY PRAYERS

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Marines_at_Prayer_by_Alex_Raymond.jpg

Now of course, the Bible commands us to, “pray without ceasing“. The Christian is to constantly talk with our Heavenly Father throughout the day.

.

But the Bible also holds up the godly life of Daniel, who, when captive in Babylon, still set aside three times daily, in which he knelt for special prayer.

.

And furthermore the Bible also says… “Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice.” Psalm 55:17.

.

Even those who are bed-fast or in a prison cell can begin to imitate Daniel in this way. And if one is fortunate to be able to walk, then this thrice-daily prayer regimen can be combined with three walks daily and even nightly.
