2 Re 16

Read chapter

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come before You today with a humble and contrite heart, seeking Your guidance and wisdom. Just as King Ahaz looked for help from earthly powers in 2 Kings 16, I sometimes find myself looking for help in all the wrong places and forgetting to turn to You first. Please forgive me for my lack of faith and reliance on my own strength.

I pray that You would help me to trust in You alone, knowing that You are the one true source of help and salvation. Please give me the strength to resist the temptation to seek solutions in the world, and instead place my trust in You.

I also ask for the wisdom to discern Your will for my life and the courage to follow it. Just as King Ahaz allowed fear and doubt to consume him, I too often let worry and anxiety cloud my judgment. Please grant me peace and confidence in Your plan for me.

Help me to remember that You are always with me and that I can seek Your guidance and strength in times of trouble. Thank You for Your unconditional love and mercy, and for always being there to hear my prayers.

In Jesus’ name, I pray.
