The king of Syria was upset that his war plans were continually being preempted by Israel. “Do we have a spy in our midst?” he asked.
“The prophet Elisha hears your secrets and tells the King of Israel,” an aide replied.
The king then ordered his army to go to Elisha’s hometown of Dothan, surround it, and capture the prophet.
Elisha’s servant arose early that morning and saw the Syrian army surrounding the city with horses and chariots. He ran to Elisha. “Alas, my master, what shall we do?”
Elisha answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
Then Elisha prayed and said:
“LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. (2 Kings 6:17)
My prayer today:
Lord, open American believers’ eyes so we can see that You and all of heaven’s armies are waiting to answer our prayers.
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for American believers’ eyes to be opened.

Yes, Lord open my eyes!
Mine, too. God bless you.
