Daniel and the Lions' Den for Little Kids

This map shows the story of Daniel and the Lions' Den which happened after Babylonia fell to the Medes and Persians!
Daniel was a humble, hardworking, Godly man from Israel that was captured when Jerusalem was defeated by the Babylonians. God knew that Daniel had a very strong faith and belief in Him; God also knew that Daniel would give all of the glory to Him for whatever happened in his life.

The King of Persia made Daniel an important leader in the kingdom because he was very smart and King Darius liked him. But the other leaders in the kingdom didn't like that Daniel was above them because he was a captive from Israel, he wasn't a Persian. They decided they would get Daniel in trouble so the king would get rid of Daniel, but they couldn't do it because Daniel was obeying all of the laws! The only way they could get Daniel in trouble was by tricking the king into passing a new law; the law said that everyone had to pray to King Darius and no other god or they would be thrown into the lions' den!

Daniel would pray to God everyday and he continued to do so from his window, even after the law was passed. Daniel was caught praying to God so they threw him into a den of hungry lions! The Bible says that God sent an angel to protect Daniel from the lions, and the next day Daniel was taken out of the lions' den without a scratch! King Darius was so happy that God protected Daniel and he told the story to all the people of his empire.

The stories of Daniel are very encouraging, especially when you realize that Daniel was a normal person just like you and me. Focus entirely on God, and may He bless and protect you like Daniel!
