The Prayer of Hezekiah!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

The Prayer of Hezekiah!


If you were facing death, as Hezekiah did…

Would you ask God for extra time to live?


Hezekiah cried out to God for a healing.

His life committed to God, was revealing.


He reflected on God and his obedience to him.

He had walked with God, and knew him!


He knew that he had done good in God’s sight.

And wept bitterly, through the day and night.


God heard his prayer, and soon answered him.

He let Hezekiah know he’d deliver him.


To his life of sickness, were added fifteen years.

God answered his prayer of brokenness and tears.


How many could pray a prayer of sincere dedication?

How many have lived a life

 of a Godly edification?


How many of us truly love God and are committed?

Before this life that we have is quickly “omitted?”


May this be a sincere message to one and all!

May the spirit of God wake us up with a loud call!


The God of Hezekiah is alive!  He truly loves you!

Won’t you allow his presence to come and touch you?


Allow God to restore what sin’s power takes away!

And allow him to add much

 more to your life today!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
