God of Abraham, God of Isaac,and God of Jacob, blessed are you;
help me, who am alone and have no helper but you, (Esther 14:3)

Chapter 14 is sub-titled “Esther’s Prayer. Before beginning this prayer Esther humbled herself by “laying on the earth”. Esther had a big request of the LORD, saving the lives of all her people, literally saving the entire Jewish population.¬† Esther and Judith are two heroes of the Old Testament, from whom we can learn how to pray.
