And Hezekiah prayed to the LORD.
Poor Hezekiah was in big trouble! He had just received a written ultimatum from the invading Assyrian king, Sennacherib, threatening the direst of consequences if he didnt surrender immediately. What did Hezekiah do? He showed the letter to the Lord and prayed for deliverance. His first action was pretty pointless, as God already knew what was in the letter! His follow-up though was spot on!
There is only one place to go when we are in trouble: to the Lord. Hezekiah knew it; and so, do we. But let us make prayer our first action point, not our second!
