Daniel’s praise–moon

The name Arioch means servant of the moon god. Arioch was the captain of Nebuchadnezzar’ guard, commissioned to kill the wise men of Babylon for not being able to tell the king his dream. Daniel and his three friends pray, and the dream is revealed to Daniel in a night vision. Interestingly, Daniel’s blessing challenges moon worship in two phrases: “he changes times and seasons” and “light dwells with him.”
Today, moon worship can be found in Hinduism, witchcraft, neopagan religions, and astrology.

Daniel 2:20-23 (NIV)

“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are his.
He changes times and seasons;
he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning.
He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness,
and light dwells with him.
I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors:
You have given me wisdom and power,
you have made known to me what we asked of you,
you have made known to us the dream of the king

Our Father in heaven, we stand in agreement with the praise of Daniel and beseech You to give wisdom and knowledge to Justin in his office of Archbishop of Canterbury. Amen.
