Prophet Daniel - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 2

Great are the accomplishments of faith, / for the Three Holy Youths rejoiced in the fountain of flames as though in the waters of rest; / and the prophet Daniel appeared, a shepherd to the lions as though they were sheep. / So by their prayers, O Christ God, save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 3

When your pure heart was purged by the Spirit / you became a vessel of clear prophecy; / you saw things far away as though they were near at hand. / When cast into their den you tamed the lions. / Therefore, we honor you, blessed prophet, glorious Daniel.
