When You Are in Need of Prayer

“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.—2 Kings 20:3 (NIV)

King Hezekiah was an honest and good ruler. When he became ill, he prayed the above words and God gave him fifteen more years of life. If you are in desperate need of God’s help, model your prayer after King Hezekiah.

Heavenly Father, I have walked before you faithfully. See my tears and hear my prayers.
