Half prayed prayers

August 12, 2008

The time for asking God to help is not when your back is up against a wall. King Zedekiah saw that Nebuchadnezzar was on his way in full battle gear. This was not the first time that he had been warned. Yet he waits till the last minute to ask Jeremiah to pray, and then only a half hearted request.

Jeremiah 21:1-2 MKJV
(1) The Word which came to Jeremiah from Jehovah, when King Zedekiah sent to him Pashur the son of Melchiah, and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, saying,
(2) Please inquire of Jehovah for us. For Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon is warring against us. Perhaps Jehovah will deal with us according to all His wonderful works, that he may go up from us.

When you ask God for something ask believing that it will happen. Of course if you have been chasing other things you will not ever have faith in God, will you?
