Daily Devotion: Hezekiah's Prayer of Integrity

Bible Reading: II Kings 20:1-11

Key Verse: Verse 2 – "Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the LORD, saying,"

Key Words: Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed

Several things are brought to our attention in regard to Hezekiah’s sickness. First of all, it was a severe problem: his sickness was “unto death.” Secondly, we see God’s plan: “set your house in order.” But we also see Hezekiah’s prayer which basically involved three things.
  1. “Lord, I have walked before thee in truth with a perfect heart.”
  2. “I have done that which is good in thy sight.” I’ve lived to please you, not men.
  3. He also prayed with a contrite spirit. He wept sore as a result of not just his prayer but his life.
Do our prayers and our life match? That’s called integrity. Do we live with integrity?

Dwight D. Eisenhower once said, “The supreme quality of life comes from integrity. Without it, no real success is possible. No matter whether it be on a football field or in an Army office, if a man’s associates find that he lacks integrity, he is bound for failure.” Your words and your actions must match.

So it is with our prayers as well: our words and actions must match. Do yours?

What to do:
✞ Pray, but pray with integrity.
