Good morning.


We can learn a lot from prayers recorded in the Old Testament. Many women and men who prayed in the Bible witnessed firsthand God’s wonder-working power—and that power is still available to us today.


The prayer of Jehoshaphat recorded in 2 Chronicles 6 is a wonderful example for us today. His prayer for help not only asked the Lord to meet his needs but also proclaimed God’s greatness. By praying, “Power and might are in Your hand so that no one can stand against You” (2 Chron. 20:6), Jehoshaphat was praising God and at the same time reminding himself of the Lord’s greatness.


While crying out to God about his terrible predicament, Jehoshaphat also exalted the Lord for His attributes and acknowledged the great things He had done previously. Reading about how He has worked in the lives of others helps us grasp the immensity of His might.


When we talk to God, recall His mercy, grace, and awesome power. Focus as much attention on Him as we do on our requests and our relationship with the Father will be transformed.


"This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s."

(2 Chronicles 20:15)


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
