ASAP (Jul 9, 2010)
ASAP means "As soon As Possible". But for the Christian it can also mean, "Always Say A Prayer"
Read 2 Kings the 19th Chapter.
King Hezekiah was one of Judah's best kings. He restored the worship of God to his nation after his father Ahaz's evil reign (2 Kings 18:3-4).
Yet when the Assyrian king attacked Judah, Hezekiah capitulated to the king and stripped off the gold from the temple in Jerusalem to placate him (vv.13-16). That did not satify the Assyrian king, however, who returned to issue another threat. It was then that Hezekiah turned to the Lord. He prayed "You are God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth....Save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You are the Lord God, You alone (19:15-19). When Hezekiah prayed, God answered him in a remarkable way and delivered him from his enemies (vv.35-37)
We may be facing a problem that leaves us feeling helpless, it may be the loss of a job, a difficult family or work situation, or health struggles. We have a powerful God to whom we can bring our Concerns and Prayer Requests. So before we do anything else, remember to ASAP---Always Say A Prayer.
Something happens when we pray: Power of evil lose their sway,
We gain strength, and fear gives way-- Therefore, let us pray.
Prayer should be our first response rather than our last resort.
