Elementary, November 15: Daniel and the Lion’s Den

This week, we are learning about Daniel and the Lion’s Den. Darius – the king of Babylon – decreed that everyone in the kingdom should bow down only to him. Daniel, though, refused to bow before anyone but God. When he heard the decree, he went instead to his room and prayed. Daniel’s enemies were outside listening – hoping to catch him disobeying the king’s orders. When they heard him praying, they reported him to Darius, who had him thrown into a den of lions.
