Day 17: Are You Praying Big

2 Kings 19:16 “Incline Your ear, O Lord, and hear; open Your 
eyes, O Lord, and see; and hear the words of Sennacherib, 
which he has sent to reproach the living God.”

   Hezekiah knew how to pray big! The king of Assyria had destroyed
46 cities and now he was after Jerusalem. So Hezekiah got
right to the heart of the matter and cried out in a very bold and
almost “brazen” way to God. In essence, he prayed for God to
listen and look and to see that His honor was at stake. God heard
his desperate cry, answered his prayer, saved the people and
demonstrated His power for all to see. Do you know God well
enough to pray that boldly?
   In 1906 John “Praying” Hyde, a Presbyterian missionary to the
Punjab region in India, “prayed big.” He asked the Lord, with great
sobs and flowing tears, to give him one soul a day for the first year,
two for the second and then four souls a day for the third year.
Following that three-year period he had personally won about
2,600 Asian Indians to Christ. Now that is praying big! Are you
praying big for your church, your nation and your world? If not,
when will you start?

Prayer Points
   • Pray for the Lord to break your heart because of the moral and
spiritual decline in the American church
   • Ask Jesus to give you a heart to pray big toward revival and
awakening in North America
