I love that Darius believes that Daniel's God will save him, and that he spends the night fasting for his friend.
I have no idea if God was just one more powerful god to Darius, but I find it so interesting that for such a pagan he had so much faith in God.

I also love Daniel's faith. I love that no matter what he continued praying the same as he always had.

"we will never find a reason to accuse Daniel unless it is about the law of his god." v5

I loved this. Daniel was blameless. He lived a life of integrity and honor. They could find NOTHING to accuse him of. They knew that the only way he was going to break a law was if it if went against his higher law. He answered FIRST to God and then to man. I hope and pray the same is true of me.

"So the administrators went to the king and said,'Long live King Darius! We administrators,prefects,advisers, and other officials have unanimously agreed that your Majesty should make a law that will be strictly enforced. Give orders that for the next 30 days anyone who prays to anyone,divine or human-except your Majesty-will be thrown to the lions.'"v 6-7

"The king was overjoyed and ordered that Daniel be lifted from the den.Not a scratch was found on him because he had trusted in his God.Then the king gave an order to arrest the men who maliciously accused Daniel.He had them thrown into the lions' den along with their wives and children."v 23-24

When people are sneaky and try to get other people into trouble so that you can get something of theirs or to get themselves out of trouble they will always get found out and be treated even worse than the person they accused.
