Prayer for Ezra 3:8

“In the second month of the second year after they arrived at God's house in Jerusalem, Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, Jeshua son of Jozadak, and the rest of their brothers, including the priests, the Levites, and all who had returned to Jerusalem from the captivity, began [to build]. They appointed the Levites who were 20 years old or more to supervise the work on the Lord's house.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many lessons we can learn from the history of Israel - from both their failures, when they doubted Your word, to their successes when they trusted Your promises. Help me to grow in grace and mature in the faith and keep me from allowing the circumstance of life to affect my faith in You. Thank You that You are always in control and that You are a faithful God Who keeps His promises. Thank You that Your mercies are new every morning and I pray that You would use me in the furtherance of the gospel for Your greater praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
