Guests Audrey and Salome Reid.
This week on Prayers of Hope we will be exploring the life of a remarkable child of prayer, young king Josiah. He became king of Judah at the tender age of 8 years old, at age 16 he was committed his life to God like his ancestral father king David, at age 20 he led the people of God away from idol worship to recommit their lives to God.
By the age of 26 years old he financed the renovation of the Sanctuary, it was during this project that the law of God was found by the high priest, he gave it the scribe. When the scribe read the law he saw the Divine punishment that was hanging over God's rebellious people. As a matter of urgency the law of God was brought to the attention of king Josiah. He became distressed as he read the Divine condemnation which was pronounced against the rebellion of the people of Judah and he immediately sent his highest officials to the prophetess of God to plead for God's direction.
The fate of the people of Judah was not good but God showed mercy to the humble and obedient king. The youthful king Josiah earnestly interceded for people of Judah and led them in the sacred Passover service which reminded them of Messiah which would come to take away their sins along with the sins of the whole world.
So please join us on Prayers of Hope and be encouraged as we focus on the life and times of the child and youthful king Josiah who did right in the sight of the LORD.
