War in heaven

Based on chapter 10 of the book of Daniel

There was war in heaven
and a man was on his knees.
Powers that controlled kingdoms
battled unseen,
while the man continued in prayer.

Fasting continued for days
as the conflict raged invisibly -
and all Daniel knew
was that God had called him to pray.

Seven days passed,
till, at last, the answer came through.
Conquest in heavenly places.
Victory achieved through prayer.
