Matthew 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

"Because You Prayed"
What do you do with your worries? Do you turn them inward, or turn them upward?
When the brutal Assyrian King Sennacherib was preparing to destroy Jerusalem, he sent a message to King Hezekiah saying that Judah would be no different from all the other nations he had conquered. Hezekiah took this message to the temple in Jerusalem, and "spread it out before the Lord." He then prayed and asked for help from Almighty God.
Soon afterward Isaiah the prophet delivered this message to Hezekiah from the Lord: "Because you prayed about King Sennacherib of Assyria, the Lord has spoken." Scripture tells us that Hezekiah's prayer was answered that very night. God intervened miraculously, conquering the enemy forces outside the city gates. The Assyrian army didn't even "shoot an arrow." Sennacherib would leave Jerusalem, never to return.
Three words in God's message to Hezekiah--"Because you prayed"--show us the best place to to go with our worries. Because Hezekiah turned to God, He rescued him and his people. When we turn our worries into prayer, we discover that God is faithful in unexpected ways!
