I saw one of the most beautiful sights I have seen in a long time last week.. My family and I were on our way to childrens camp at our church to spend the day with them, and we stopped at Chillis for some yummy lunch. The waiter approached our table and almost without realizing it I was staring at the table just a few tables over. When asked what I wanted to drink I quickly answered and let Eddie deal with the kiddos as I watched a table of 6 grown men praying. They were all ages; a couple no doubt was a few years my junior, but the rest scattered in ages had their heads bowed in a moment with our God. I sat and thought what an incredible sight. I have seen families pray many, many times, but a table of 6 grown men was something special. I sat and thought about the sight I was beholding thinking, â€œWhy God, do I not see more of this?
I was going to blog about something totally different today, but after my quiet time I couldn’t shake this sight. I read today of King Hezekiah in 2 kings 19. The short version is the King of Assyria was basically bullying him, and Gods people. He was telling them not to believe King Hezekiah. So what did Hezekiah do?????????? He got on his face and prayed. He acknowledged that God is the ONLY TRUE GOD, and asked for God deliverance.. 2 Kings 19:20b says, because you have prayed to Me about Sennacherib King of Assyria, I have heard you. Not only did God hear him, God destroyed 185,000 Assyrians, and the King died in his own land.
There is so much power sweet one, when we bow the knee. I have prayed the craziest prayers, and God in His goodness hears, and acts. We must get back to bowing our knees, humbling ourselves, and asking God to move.. Our country needs it. Our families need it. Our marriages need it. Our kids need it. Our future depends on it. If you find yourself in a huge battle that looks hopeless for you commit to praying and often, until you see the Mighty hand of God in your circumstance.
God is waiting for you sweet one. Talk to Him.
