When Nehemiah prayed, he knew that he was praying to an almighty, sovereign God that keeps His promises. This includes His promises to chasten His people when they are disobedient, as the exiles had experienced during their captivity in Babylon. That is why confession and repentance were key elements of Nehemiah’s prayer. Please open your Bible to Nehemiah chapter one, verse eight, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola concludes his study of this chapter.
