Scripture: II Kings 5:-6
Naaman was so convinced that the maid was right that he went to the Syrian king and requested a letter to go and visit the prophet who was in Israel. Naaman being a wealthy man was not going empty handed. He took ten talents of silver worth approximately $8,640,000 and 6,000 shekels of gold worth $17,280,000. So Naaman brought a $25,920,000 offering. Not a bad offering for one prayer! In addition to the offering, he took garments as well. And he presents his letter to Israel’s king saying, ‘recover me of from my leprosy.’ The king of Israel did not receive this very well. He was convinced that the king of Syria was declaring war on him. But that was not the case. The leaders of Israel obviously did not realize the anointing of the prophets among them, but the common people discerned it perfectly. Do we have that being repeated here in our land? I suspect we do.
