What do you do when you receive bad news? King Hezekiah received bad news three times in Isaiah 37-38. Each time, his first response was to go to the Lord. He did not strategize or ask others to help him solve the problems--he went to the Lord. And in each instance, the Lord showed what happens when we cry out to Him: He hears, and He answers.
Let us take our needs to the Lord first, for He hears us, and He answers us!
Isaiah 37:14-15, 21-22 (NIV): "Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the temple of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord. And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord.. Then Isaiah son of Amoz sent a message to Hezekiah: 'This is what the Lord, the God of Israel,
says: Because you have prayed to me concerning Sennacherib king of Assyria, this is the word the Lord has spoken against him.'"
