King Asa’s good beginning 2 Chron 14

King Asa begins his reign in an exemplary way by abolishing idols and commanded Judah to seek the Lord. Asa instructed people to build up these towns… and put walls around them with towers, gates and bars 2 chron 14:7

Zerah,the Ethiopian led a vast army to attack Judah.Asa called on the Lord with one of the most wonderful prayer for help Lord there is no one like You to help the powerless against the mighty, Help us, O Lord, our God for we rely on You and in Your name, we have come against this vast army, O Lord You are our God do not let not man prevail against You 2 chron 14:11

This faith was enough for the Lord to rout the enemy. Asa’s army which fought with the power of the Lord routed Zerah’s forces. This prayer of the helpless, depending on the Lord, is a good prayer when we face trials
