St. Daniel the prophet was a youth in Babylonian captivity and was made one of three presidents in the kingdom of Darius. He was so admired by Darius that Darius considered putting the rule of the kingdom under Daniel. The other presidents, and satraps wanted to remove Daniel, and so they had Darius issue an edict that anyone praying within 30 days of the edict must be placed in the lion’s den. When Daniel continued praying three times a day, he was thrown into the lion’s den overnight, but the next morning he was found unharmed. So impressed was Darius that he had the satraps and presidents cast into the lion’s den with their families. They were instantly killed by the lions.
