What can we learn from Hezekiah's prayer in 2 Kings 19:14-19?

Hezekiah's Prayer

14 Hezekiah received n the letter from the hand of the messengers and read it; and Hezekiah went up to the house of the Lord and spread it before the Lord. 15 And Hezekiah prayed before the Lord and said: "O Lord, the God of Israel, o enthroned above the cherubim, p you are the God, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth. 16 q Incline your ear, O Lord, and hear; r open your eyes, O Lord, and see; and hear the words of Sennacherib, which he has sent s to mock the living God. 17 Truly, O Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste the nations and their lands 18 and have cast their gods into the fire, for they were not gods, t but the work of men's hands, wood and stone. Therefore they were destroyed. 19 So now, O Lord our God, save us, please, from his hand, u that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that p you, O Lord, are God alone." (ESV)
