Navigating PRAYER with Nehemiah: 52 Days of Praise, Pleas & Petitions (DAY 1 OF 52)



Navigating PRAYER with Nehemiah: 
52 Days of Praise, Pleas & Petitions (DAY 1 OF 52)

INTRODUCTION/DAY 1 OF 52

The Key Word Nehemiah means Jehovah comforts in Hebrew and is also a common name. Nehemiah is also the sixteenth book of the Old Testament. The Key Word Nehemiah is found in the holy word of God eight times. Nehemiah was written by Ezra, sometime during or after Nehemiah's second term as governor/scribe but no later than 400 BC. Christian tradition recognizes Ezra as the author while Nehemiah is recognized as the priest-scribe. The first twelve chapters of Nehemiah encompassed about one year. Followed by a long group of time after chapter twelve and before chapter thirteen. 

PRAISE

Dear Lord God Almighty, Thank You for being God! You are the God of the Heavens and the earth. You are the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. You are the God of yesterday, today and tomorrow! You are the one true God of all the earth and eternity. You are everlasting and faithful to each and every generation. You are the God who comforts, controls and creates all things. Your power and strong hand brought Israel and my forefathers/mothers out of multiple decades of hard bondage. From shore to shore and sea to sea you alone are faithful and most worthy to be praised.

PRAYER AND PLEA

And said, I beseech thee, O Lord God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:
Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father's house have sinned.
We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.
Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:
But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.
10 Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.

11 O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king's cupbearer. Nehemiah 1: 5-11

He is a ground leveling God {Publishing Update}

May 31, 2018 HE IS A GROUND LEVELING GOD {PUBLISHING UPDATE} Much is going on or shall I say everything is crazy in the working background of Key Word Bible Studies! I am so crazy excited and blessed to be continually amazed in the mercy, grace, and love of the ALMIGHTY!  Please find below an update as of this mourning at 9 AM but before 12 PM. I currently live without electricity (1 month) and our water supply will be turned off today. My husband still lives in Franklin, while I live in the Boro! I am dressed in pretty pink and white and I spilled coffee on both. My children live together in an apartment not far from the DD from which I type and drink my morning cup. I wrote a post or maybe it was a prayer about an old chair on June 3 - 2011. I walked the Murfreesboro Secret Garden tour on June 4 - 2011. Although I committed to Read The Bible In 90 Day, I have yet to complete said reading. When God says seven years or seven days God means seven years or seven d
