"When you think of prayer, what comes to mind? Why do you pray? How do you pray? First, it is important to remember who exactly it is we are praying to: The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God over everything. Next, we need to check our attitude. How are we approaching God? What we see in our reading today is that King Jehoshaphat was desperate. He knew whom he was talking to. Jehoshaphat knew that God was the only hope that the nation had. He knew that God was over the whole earth, all nations, rather than Israel and Judah alone. What Jehoshaphat recognized is still a universal truth: God is over all. This is why things change when we pray to Him. When we pray, we should not be trying to get our way, we pray that God will intercede, that He will do what is right; it’s not about trying to boss God around but rather to ask for Him to intervene. Jehoshaphat’s monumental problem can stand as a witness to us of the power of a desperate prayer.
