Nehemiah is a cup bearer for the King in Susa when he hears from some men who have come from Judahwith reports of how the Jews are doing since they were captured. Nehemiah hears that life is not good for the Jews back in Judah because the walls of Jerusalem are torn down. This brings Nehemiah to his knees in tears and and he prays to the Lord. Nehemiah comes before the Lord in prayer seeking His favor and blessing. In his prayer, Nehemiah leaves us a blueprint to follow when we want to see change in our world.
