Daily Devotional | Hezekiah's Prayer

  • April 13, 2021 | Romans 8:31

People love an underdog story, when a downtrodden person conquers great obstacles and transforms into a hero. In today’s passage, Hezekiah is the underdog. Assyria is set on attacking the city of Judah. They have been ruthless with other cities they conquered, treating them like animals. Now they were fixed on the people of Judah. In fact, they were overly confident that they could defeat Judah. They sent Hezekiah a letter mocking Yahweh: “Do not let the god you depend on deceive you” (v. 10), inferring that they have defeated other countries and their gods did not save them. But the Assyrians underestimated Yahweh; they did not realize that He alone is God.

Hello Friend,

Do you have a prayer warrior in your life?

Maybe it’s your grandmother or a church friend. What a treasure to know someone is praying faithfully on our behalf. And what about you? Do you consider yourself a person dedicated to prayer?

Many of us may feel more like this month’s daily devotional Bible study author Dr. Chris Rappazini, “I know prayer is something I need to do and most of the time it is something I want to do. But other times I wonder if it is working or if I am even doing it right?”

Join us this month as we open God’s Word to study Powerful Prayers of the Bible. Together, we’ll look at the prayers of Jesus, kings, prophets, and Christ’s followers. And, as we learn from Scripture, we hope you’ll experience a refreshed and reinvigorated prayer life.
