There was a man that lived in the city with a good life, he had a great job he was well respected in the community but his heart was broken. This man loved God and tried to what God commanded this man was not alone their were other just like him that had a broken heart and lived in the city. Their were other men who were exile from the city that love God and their hearts were broken. The city was but a remnant of it’s former self. These were the Kings of the Motor City that live all over the land that cried out to the Lord when they heard about the great trouble and the disgrace that came to the city. They heard from the remnant that the wall was broken down and the gates were on fire they cried to the Lord as Nehemiah cried.
4 When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. 5 Then I said:
“LORD, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, 6 let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father’s family, have committed against you. 7 We have acted very wickedly toward you. We have not obeyed the commands, decrees and laws you gave your servant Moses.
8 “Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, 9 but if you return to me and obey my commands, then even if your exiled people are at the farthest horizon, I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for my Name.’
10 “They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. 11 Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.”
God use us your servants to restore what was loss “our covenant love relationship with you” God use us for your purpose gives us the strength to rebuild the wall and restore the gate so we will once again have a safe city to worship you in peace.
