Prayer for Nehemiah 1:3

“They said to me, "The survivors in the province, who returned from the exile, are in great trouble and disgrace. Jerusalem's wall has been broken down, and its gates have been burned down."”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of Nehemiah, who not only grieved at the state of his nation and repented of their sin... but trusted You to fulfil Your promises to Your people Israel - by offering himself to be used by You, to fulfil Your plans for His people. May I grieve and repent for the sorry state of the Church today.. and maintain my faith in You to fulfil all Your promises to the Church. May I be part of a faithful remnant whom You use, to forward Your plans and purposes, in a world that is spiralling out of control - to Your praise and glory - so that the world may KNOW that You are the Lord. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
