2 Samuel 2:1
"Afterward David inquired of Jehovah, saying: "Should I go up into one of the cities of Judah?..."
David sets a good example at 2 Samuel 2:1 where he inquired of Jehovah when making a decision. He often asked Jehovah for direction before doing something. Whether we are dealing with a difficult situation, making a decision, or resisting some kind of temptation, prayer is essential. When we pray we can ask for Holy Spirit which can guide us and strengthen us. We also need to act in harmony with our prayers like David did in verse 2.
