Good morning people who partner with what God is doing
Hezekiah was a man of God who changed God’s mind because of his prayers. And God responds the same way to His children today.
2 Kings 20:1-7 (NIV) In those days Hezekiah became ill and was at the point of death. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz went to him and said, “This is what the Lord says: Put your house in order, because you are going to die; you will not recover.” Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Remember, Lord, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly. Before Isaiah had left the middle court, the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the ruler of my people, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the temple of the Lord. I will add fifteen years to your life. And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’” Then Isaiah said, “Prepare a poultice of figs.” They did so and applied it to the boil, and he recovered.
I believe we need an awakening of what prayer actually accomplishes! It can change our circumstances and turn them around. It can cause revelation to come to a person far away from God and help them to see Him. It can create something from nothing and replace old with new. It can release the angels of heaven to bring about a mighty victory on earth. It can change the mind of God.
So here’s my question for you: “Do you want to be part of the answer?”
If you answered YES, then pray. And when you’ve prayed, pray some more. If the enemy can stop you from praying, he can stop the situation from changing.
Our prayers are powerful.
