SUNDAY SCHOOL NEWS Hezekiah Prays: 2 Kings 18-19; Story Bible p. 209. Hezekiah prayed in faith to God and was delivered. Jesus, our mediator and advocate with the Father, intercedes for us, granting us deliverance from sin, death, and the devil. Parents could ask, “Why did Hezekiah go to God in prayer? In what ways does God answer our prayers today?”
