Praying through Ezra 1:5

Heavenly Father, thank You for the book of Ezra. I pray that my spirit may be ever open to do Your will. Keep my heart ready to obey Your Word and follow Your leading and guidance, and use me I pray, to carry out Your will for my life. I lift those in the Church who like Zerubbabel and Ezra, have the responsibility of being leaders and elders and pray that you would move their hearts to listen to Your Word, carry out Your will, and encourage all their brothers and sisters in Christ during the difficult times we are all facing. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
