Praying through Nehemiah 8:2

Heavenly Father, thank You for the courage of Nehemiah, who purposed in his heart to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem for Your praise and glory, and refused to be intimidated by those that despise Your name. Thank You for the witness of Ezra the scribe, whom You used to reignite the moral and spiritual fire in the hearts of Israel during this difficult time in their history. Lord, I pray that I may be filled with the same courage and dedication as these two men of God. Kindle the flame of pure celestial fire in the heart of all Your people with an inextinguishable blaze. May Your perfect will be done in the lives of all Your people, and I pray that my life may be a living sacrifice that honours Your name. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month.”
