Dear Lord and Heavenly Father, there is so much for me to learn and I pray that I would have a teachable spirit. Thank You for the Scriptures and for Nehemiah the scribe and Eliashib the high priest, who faithfully carried out the work that You gave them to do with a willing spirit and joyful heart - and who and became such good examples of faithfulness to emulate. Thank You for the gifts and graces that You have given to me. I pray that I would carry out the work that You have called me to do faithfully, and for Your glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
