Monday—Read: 2 Kings 1:1-4 Think: How does the king get hurt? To whom does he turn? How does Elijah intervene? Pray: Speak to the Lord about a pain in your life which you have tried to cure in other ways.
Tuesday—Read: 2 Kings 1:5-8 Think: Do you think Ahaziah had dealt with Elijah before? Why? Pray: If you were on your death and told you would not get better, how would you pray? Pray that way right now.
Wednesday—Read: 2 Kings 1:9-15 Think: What mistake did the first two captains make? What do you think of Elijah’s response to the first two groups? Pray: Meditate upon the fact Elijah was not swayed by power—military or regal—and ask the Lord to help you not be swayed by worldly power.
Thursday—Read: 2 Kings 1:16 Think: What do you think was Ahaziah’s last thought before he died? Pray: Ask the Lord for grace and peace when your time comes to die rather than the strife and doubt of the heathen Ahaziah.
Friday–Read: 2 Kings 1:17-18 Think: If you were Jehoram, who is the first person you’d consult upon becoming King? Pray: For leadership to learn important lessons from the past.
