“In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came unto him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live. Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the LORD, And said, Remember now, O LORD, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore” (Isaiah 38:1-3).
Today’s Morsel: One thing about King Hezekiah that I notice was that he seemed to know how to pray and to get ahold of God. Hezekiah seemed to have a relationship with God and prayer must be the catalyst for every believer. It must be the substance that holds them firm and sure in God’s ability to do what His word says. That old saying, “Seven days without prayer will make one weak” is true. Prayer strengthens us. Paul said that we should pray without ceasing and in everything to give thanks. If we will maintain an attitude of gratitude, we will always have a heart for prayer.
Sing: Whisper a prayer in the morning, whisper a prayer at noon. Whisper a prayer in the evening, and keep your heart intone.
Thought For Today: “The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous” (Proverbs 15:29).
