2 Kings 19:14. "And Hezekiah received the letter of the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up into the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD."
Hezekiah did not just pray about the letter he spread it before the LORD. I can visualize the king unrolling the scroll at the altar and kneeling before it and talking to the Lord. In reference to another prayer God tells the king He has seen his tears (2 Kings 20:5). How is our prayer lives? Maybe we should literally lay things before the Lord and sow with more tears.
