2 Chronicles 20:5-13
Then Jehoshaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem in the LORD's temple before the new courtyard.
He said: LORD God of our ancestors, are You not the God who is in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations? Power and might are in Your hand, and no one can stand against You.
Are You not our God who drove out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel and who gave it forever to the descendants of Abraham Your friend?
They have lived in the land and have built You a sanctuary in it for Your name and have said,
"If disaster comes on us-- sword or judgment, pestilence or famine-- we will stand before this temple and before You, for Your name is in this temple. We will cry out to You because of our distress, and You will hear and deliver."
Now here are the Ammonites, Moabites, and [the inhabitants of] Mount Seir. You did not let Israel invade them when Israel came out of the land of Egypt, but Israel turned away from them and did not destroy them.
Look how they repay us by coming to drive us out of Your possession that You gave us as an inheritance.
Our God, will You not judge them? For we are powerless before this vast multitude that comes [to fight] against us. We do not know what to do, but we look to You.
All Judah was standing before the LORD with their infants, their wives, and their children.

Hezekiah prayed to the LORD:
"LORD of Hosts, God of Israel, who is enthroned above the cherubim, You are God-- You alone-- of all the kingdoms of the earth. You made the heavens and the earth.
Listen closely, LORD, and hear; open Your eyes, LORD, and see; hear all the words that Sennacherib has sent to mock the living God.
LORD, it is true that the kings of Assyria have devastated all these countries and their lands
and have thrown their gods into the fire; for they were not gods but made by human hands-- wood and stone. So they have destroyed them.
Now, LORD our God, save us from his hand so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You are the LORD-- You alone."
Then Isaiah son of Amoz sent [a message] to Hezekiah: "The LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Because you prayed to Me about Sennacherib king of Assyria,
Joel 2:17
Let the priests, the LORD's ministers, weep between the portico and the altar. Let them say: "Have pity on Your people, LORD, and do not make Your inheritance a disgrace, an object of scorn among the nations. Why should it be said among the peoples, 'Where is their God?'"
Amos 7:1-6
The Lord God showed me this: He was forming a swarm of locusts at the time the spring crop first began to sprout-- after the cutting of the king's hay.
When the locusts finished eating the vegetation of the land, I said, "Lord God, please forgive! How will Jacob survive since he is so small?"
The LORD relented concerning this. "It will not happen," He said.
The Lord God showed me this: The Lord God was calling for a judgment by fire. It consumed the great deep and devoured the land.
Then I said, "Lord God, please stop! How will Jacob survive since he is so small?"
The LORD relented concerning this. "This will not happen either," said the Lord God.
