Almighty, Benevolent Father, your mercies never end. You are righteous and just. When King Hezekiah fell deathly ill, he prayed for healing and you honored his request with 15 additional years. You told him for the second time that you would defend the city for your name’s sake. Only you know the length of my days. I pray that when I get to the end of my days that I can say that I walked before you in faithfulness and with my whole heart done what is good in your sight. I long to hear you say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” Guide me on the path to that end by your Holy Spirit. Be glorified in my efforts for your kingdom in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, saying, ‘Now, O Lord, please remember how I have walked before you in faithfulness and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in your sight.’ And Hezekiah wept bitterly.” (2 Kings 20: 2-3 ESV)
