Judith prays (Jdt 9:1-9:1)

“Then Judith prostrated herself. She put ashes on her head. She uncovered the sackcloth she was wearing. At the very time when that evening incense was being offered in the house of God in Jerusalem, Judith cried out to the Lord with a loud voice.”

Judith then prayed with ashes on her head. However, she took off the sackcloth that she was wearing. She began to pray at the very moment when the evening incense was being offered in the Jerusalem Temple. She addressed her prayer to God with a loud voice.
