The posture of prayer…

In II Chronicles 20:12, King Jehoshaphat is praying to God concerning the armies that are attacking Judah. His prayer is a great model for us, for it exudes helplessness, ignorance, dependence, and faith – “…we are powerless before this great multitude who are coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on You.” This should be our continual posture in all of life, and especially in prayer.
