Hezekiah’s willingness to pray in today’s passage indicates that while the promises of God are sure, we should not be afraid to pray even after we have received them. As we seek the Lord’s face, He brings His purposes to pass, as He has ordained that our prayers are a means by which He fulfills His Word to us. That is why, for example, we pray for the Lord Jesus to return (Rev. 22:20). His return is sure, but the Lord will bring it about as His people pray to Him.
