Pray Like Hezekiah

A woman prays

Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the temple of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord.—2 Kings 19:14 (NIV)

Hezekiah immediately shared his bad news with God. Do you follow Hezekiah’s example and turn to Him first, bearing your troubles fully and passionately? Welcome God into your urgent situations and ask for His guidance. Be honest and real.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, what should I do?

Adapted from 60 Days of Prayer, a new publication from Guideposts
