And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire. And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven, Nehemiah 1:3-4
Almighty God, as You made the heart of Nehemiah who was in comfort in the palace to grieve for his brethren in affliction, in like manner You will bring conviction to the hearts of helpers of Your cause in all lands in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Blessed Redeemer, please raise up watchmen for Your persecuted people in all nations such that Your heart will move to rescue them in the name of Jesus. Amen.
O Compassionate Savior, please remember Your mercies and set in motion in our lands the sure and perfect course that brings restoration to our desolate places in the name of Jesus. Amen.
