As we come to the end of our Prayer Scriptures from the book of Nehemiah let us always pray for one another, let us pray for our Sisters and Brothers around the World to remain faithful and obedient to our God. May discipline and faithfulness rule our lives and may we lift one another up in times of temptation!
Love and Peace always in Christ Jesus,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
Was it not because of marriages like these that Solomon king of Israel sinned? Among the many nations there was no king like him. He was loved by his God, and God made him king over all Israel, but even he was led into sin by foreign women. Must we hear now that you too are doing all this terrible wickedness and are being unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women?” One of the sons of Joiada son of Eliashib the high priest was son-in-law to Sanballat the Horonite. And I drove him away from me. Remember them, my God, because they defiled the priestly office and the covenant of the priesthood and of the Levites. So I purified the priests and the Levites of everything foreign, and assigned them duties, each to his own task. I also made provision for contributions of wood at designated times, and for the firstfruits. Remember me with favor, my God.
