Nehemiah’s Prayer is surely ours

“Great Lord, God of heaven, Who inspires us to awe, You always keep Your Word, Your love, Your promises with mercy shown to those who love and obey You. So now I ask You to open Your eyes, Your ears to this prayer as I pray - night and day - for Your servants, Your children. Lord, I confess we have sinned against You, and so have those before us. How greatly we have wronged You! We have failed to obey Your commandments and laws given to us through Your servant Moses. But, Lord, do You remember what You told us back then? You said, ‘If you are not faithful to Me, I will scatter you among the nations. But if you return to Me and obey My commands - even if you are as far away as you can go - I will come and get you. I will bring you to the place I have chosen for My Name’.” Nehemiah 1:5-9 as prayer-a-phrased by Mary Sayler after reading various translations on Bible Gateway ©2018
