Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The first chapter of Nehemiah is so powerful that a couple of verses were worth repeating. Nehemiah asked the Lord to remember what He said to Moses His friend concerning His people. He came boldly before the throne of grace knowing that he too needed forgiveness for his disobedience. As bold as he came he also came In humility. I pray that in our prayers we are able to come as Nehemiah. Let us seek to always please the Lord by lifting all of His people up as well as ourselves.
God Bless and Keep You,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
Nehemiah 1:8-11 NKJV
“Remember, I pray, the word that You commanded Your servant Moses, saying, ‘ If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations; but if you return to Me, and keep My commandments and do them, though some of you were cast out to the farthest part of the heavens, yet I will gather them from there, and bring them to the place which I have chosen as a dwelling for My name.’ Now these are Your servants and Your people, whom You have redeemed by Your great power, and by Your strong hand. O Lord, I pray, please let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of Your servants who desire to fear Your name; and let Your servant prosper this day, I pray, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man.” For I was the king’s cupbearer.”
