38 In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came unto him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live.

Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the Lord,

And said, Remember now, O Lord, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.

Then came the word of the Lord to Isaiah, saying,

Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years.

And I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria: and I will defend this city.

And this shall be a sign unto thee from the Lord, that the Lord will do this thing that he hath spoken;

Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down.

And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
Mark 1:40

MFM Daily Devotional 2 March 2024 MESSAGE

Yesterday, we rounded off our discourse by stressing that Jesus taught us to always take our needs to God, His Father and our Father too. The reason for this divine admonition is that our Father is sovereign, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. He is ever-sufficient and always more than enough. He can do all things and meet all needs.

The following Bible characters provide us good examples of those who had needs, told God about them and their needs were met:

  1. The leper who asked to be purified (Mark 1:40). He told Jesus about his need and got his miracle
  2. David asked for forgiveness (Psalm 51). God heard and forgave him.
  3. Peter asked for salvation (Matthew 14:30).
  4. The evil-doer on the cross asked Jesus to remember him (Luke 23:42).
  5. The tax collector asked for mercy (Luke 18:13).
  6. The Canaanite woman asked for help for her daughter (Matthew 15:22).
  7. The blind asked to have his eyes opened (Mark 10:51).

Beloved, note that all the foregoing Bible characters got their needs met by the Lord, and their sorrow was replaced with great joy. Why worry and complain when you can pray? The hymn writer penned, “What a privilege we often forfeit and what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry all our needs and challenges to God in prayer.” Beloved, God can do all things. Let your need drive you to Him in prayer, not to beggarly powers. With unwavering faith, tell Him about your needs. He will meet and even surpass them.

READ MFM Daily Devotional 1 March 2024 – Tell God About Your Need (I)

King Hezekiah was at a crossroads. Heaven had passed a verdict on him and communicated it to him through God’s trusted servant, Prophet Isaiah. He was to set his house in order because he would die and not survive the sickness he was battling with. At that point, only God could meet his need and save him. The Bible says that the king turned his face to the wall and prayed to God (Isaiah 38:2). God heard him, healed him, and elongated his life.

Beloved, for God to meet your need whenever you tell Him, you must do the following:
1) Be born again
2) Believe that He can do all things and
3) Cast your care upon Him


1. My Father, give me a special encounter by your name El-Shaddai, in the name of Jesus.

2. O Heaven, open and pour into my life the resources that outweigh my needs, in the name of Jesus.
3. Powers that want to turn me into a beggar, you are liars, die, in the name of Jesus.

4. O God, that answered King Hezekiah and gave Him miracles and testimonies, manifest in my situation today, in the name of Jesus.
5. Father, give me water and honey from the rock, in the name of Jesus.
6. O God of Elijah, raise me from the dust, lift me from the dunghill, and make me sit with the princes of Your people, in the name of Jesus.
7. My Father, make me a blessing to my generation, in the name of Jesus.
