2 Kings 20:1 & 5 (New King James Version)
1] In those days Hezekiah was sick and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, went to him and said to him, “Thus says the LORD: ‘Set your house in order, for you shall die, and not live.’”
5] “Return and tell Hezekiah the leader of My people, ‘Thus says the LORD, the God of David your father: “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will heal you. On the third day you shall go up to the house of the LORD.
Does Prayer Change Things?
The Lord who can not lie, told king Hezekiah that he was going to die. When the king got that bit of bad news, he sought the Lord with tears, begging for his life. God heard and answered, and gave Hezekiah 15 more years. However, during those 15 extra years, his son, Manasseh was born, and he turned out to be the most cruel and violent ruler that Judah ever had. Manasseh killed so many innocent people that their blood ran in the streets of Jerusalem. Maybe we should watch what we pray for and always ask "if it is Your will?" God knows best.
So, pray to the Father in Christ's name. Keep a log of your prayers and write down God's answer to your prayers. Try the Lord and see what great things He will do.
FOR TODAY: Don't underestimate the power of prayer in your life.
