“….Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed: “Remember, Lord, that I have served you faithfully and loyally and that I have always tried to do what you wanted me to.” And he began to cry bitterly….” 2 Kings 20:2‭-‬3 (GNT)

Another wonderful lesson we learned from the story of King Hezekiah is that he prayed a heartfelt prayer and immediately his prayers were answered. Beloved, if you truly want to see your prayers produce results every time, you must make sure it is heartfelt, in other words, it has to come from deep within your heart. In most cases, these kinds of prayers are always accompanied by tears because now your emotions are involved. 

Now, when I speak of emotions and tears, I am not talking about that kind of prayer where you are praying and crying because you feel defeated. I’m talking about the kind of prayer where you begin to groan. These kinds of prayers always work wonders because you are not praying with your head now but with your heart, and the issues of life according to the Bible, begin from the heart ( Proverbs 4:23). Did you see that? So, if you truly want to move things in your life and cause changes, you must learn to pray heartfelt prayers like King Hezekiah.

Sadly, too many people today are not praying heartfelt prayers and yet they want results. Most of the prayers offered today do not come from the heart but from the head. All they just want is results but they are not willing sir down and diligently seek the Lord. Beloved, you should be different. Make a conscious decision to pray heartfelt prayers and you can be sure to always get answers to your prayers because the Bible declares that “…..the earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].James 5:16 (AMPC). Hallelujah! 


No matter what you face or go through, heartfelt prayers will always secure your answers! 


Father, I am grateful for imparting my life with this knowledge. I decree that the wisdom and grace to engage in heartfelt prayers is at work in me in the name of Jesus. Amen!
