Prayer for Ezra 2:1

“These now are the people of the province who came from those captive exiles King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had deported to Babylon. Each of them returned to his hometown Jerusalem and Judah.”

Praying through Ezra 2:1

Heavenly Father, yet again in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah, we see how Your plans and purposes for the redemption of mankind, through our Lord Jesus Christ, are played out on the stage of history. Just as You brought Your people back to the land promised to their forefathers, I thank and praise You that nothing in heaven or earth can undermine Your perfect will for any of Your people. Thank You for Your great faithfulness to both Israel and the Church and thank You that You turn evil to good and shine Your light of joy and hope into every night of mourning. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
