1991 wrangler won't start..HELP

Recently picked up this 1991 Wrangler ran perfectly, that is until last night when I attempted to get it started. It has been raining for the past few days, just sure if that could have something to do with it, but, just offering some background information. Any suggestions, I am hoping that it is just a battery replacement.

I'll guess that it don't crank so. check battery voltage,conections. try raping on the starter then see if it will crank. that will tell you the starter needs replacing. if still no crank test starter. that's the normal stuff. after that it gets more complicated. ignition,relays and so on.

Thank for the assist. I thought it was the battery as well, charged the battery and was still running into the same issue. Thought it could be the spark plugs, changed that and the distributor and distributor roter. Still ran into the same issue then noticed that if I pushed on the gas it would start up.. did all of that today. And tomorrow will try and see if changing the fuel filter will help. Looks like the previous owner didn't keep up with the maintenance. Thanks ..
