Prayer Heals...

2 Kings 20:1-6

"In those days Hezekiah became ill and was at the point of death. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz went to him and said, "This is what the LORD says: Put your house in order, because you are going to die; you will not recover."
Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the LORD, "Remember, O LORD, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes." And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
Before Isaiah had left the middle court, the word of the LORD came to him: "Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, 'This is what the LORD, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the temple of the LORD. I will add fifteen years to your life. And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.' "

I thought about Lindsey Pond today as I read these verses of healing. God does hear our prayers and he does heal. If you have never visited or read Lindsey's blog, just click on the link below. She is 26, newly married, and has cancer. You may have to read way back to get her story, but it is amazing. She goes to Green Acres Baptist, she is truly an inspiration. To God be all the Glory!
