In these two passages, we see examples of how Asa exhibited faithfulness in his prayers, and we see his failure to seek God. It’s easy to get trapped by the lures of self-reliance. As we look to the new year, may we cultivate lifestyles of deep dependence on God through prayer. Let’s pray for big things and trust God to do what only He can!
Scripture: II Chronicles 14:9-15; II Chronicles 16
