David's victory over the Amalekites who raided Ziklag was due to
David's victory over the Amalekites who raided Ziklag was due to his prayer in seeking the approval of God before pursuing them. After the Amalekites raided Ziklag and took all the women and children captive, David and his men were greatly distressed. However, David strengthened himself in the Lord and inquired of the Lord if he should pursue the raiders. God told David to pursue them, assuring him that he would recover all that was taken. David obeyed God's instructions, and they pursued the Amalekites. God fought for David and his men, and they were able to recover all that was taken and even captured more spoil from the Amalekites.
