HEZEKIAH PRAYER. "In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isiah the prophet, the son of Amos came unto him, and said unto him, thus saith the Lord, set thine house in order, for thou shall die and not live. Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the Lord. And said, remember now, O Lord, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with perfect heart and have done this which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore. Then came the word of the Lord to Isiah, saying, go and say to Hezekiah, thus said the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have hear thy prayer, I have seen thy tears, behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years"- Isiah 38:1-5 What is the significance of Hezekiah's prayer? As a Christian, we needs to know that Prayer can and does change things, irrespective of its state. Hezekiah believes in this and God answers its prayer. Masters men and people can give up concerning a situation, but when it comes in contact with the effectual fervent prayer of a believer, it submits to it. You can change your destiny through prayer. God is the person behind prayer and He has given great power to it. God answers prayer, no matter the time it is offered. The scriptures according to Isiah 65:24, "And it shall comes to pass, that before they call, I will answer and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. God not only hear prayers,but He also answers prayer. You may not be satisfied about the course of your that your life is taking, what are you doing to change it? You have got to pray. Prayer projects faith on God and God on the World.
