The Lord’s Abundant Mercy

Jehoahaz did what was evil in the Lord’s sight. So the Lord was very angry and he allowed him to be defeated repeatedly.

Then Jehoahaz prayed for the Lord’s help, and the Lord heard his prayer and provided someone to rescue him (Read the whole story in 2 Kings 13:1-9).

The Lord’s mercy is abundant.

Pray for One Another

When we pray for one another, we’re asking God to work. We’re also serving one another, bearing one another’s burdens, and loving one another (see Galatians 5:13, 6:2; 1 Peter 1:22).

Praying for one another helps us forgive and be at peace with one another (see Ephesians 4:32, Mark 9:50).

Pray for one another (James 5:16).

R.G. LeTourneau’s Prayer

Deeply worried, LeTourneau prayed, “Don’t let me down now, Lord. I’ve got all this work, and if you let me down, I’m ruined.”

Right then he saw his mistake and hastened to say, “Lord, I didn’t mean that. I’m not asking You not to let me down. I’m asking you to help me not let you down. I’m not asking to use You. I’m asking you to use me.”*
