"Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress."
Think of the scariest moment went you have ever went through. When you felt your heart drop or sick to your stomach. I’ve had a few. One that comes to mind was when I was driving in pitch black through the smoking mountains. There were no signs and very few cars. My GPS kept on going in and out. I took a few wrong turns. I felt sick in the pit of my stomach. Imagine living like this every single day. Imagine multiplying the anxiety ten times as much. This is how Hezekiah and his people felt under the oppressive rule of King Sennacherib. Their anxiety intensifies as the Assyrian army lays siege over their city. At this time of great agony, Isaiah offers a prayer for God to be their salvation in times of trouble.
