Simple Prayers (3)

King Hezekiah was 25 years old when he became king. He ruled in Jerusalem for 29 years. Hezekiah trusted God and did what was right. There was no other king in Judah that was like him. Hezekiah removed all the false idols and kept God’s commands.
Our Bible Reading tells us that King Hezekiah became sick. God told Isaiah to tell Hezekiah that he would die. Hezekiah cried very hard and prayed this prayer to God: “Lord, remember that I have sincerely served you with all my heart. I have done what you say is good” (verse 3a).
Hezekiah didn’t ask God to heal him. He only asked God to remember his faithfulness. Because of Hezekiah’s faithfulness, God told Isaiah to tell Hezekiah that He would heal him. God added 15 years to Hezekiah’s life.
Don’t forget that God pays attention to your prayers. He sees your sorrow and tears. And He remembers your faithfulness.
