God specializes in restoration! That is one of His signature expressions of His grace and strength. During a time of ruin and humiliation in Jerusalem, God raised up a leader for His people who would be not only a wide leader, but also an amazing agent of restoration. What is noteworthy is that the restoration project undertaken in Jerusalem began with a prayer – a prayer that was prayed by someone whose love for Jerusalem initially provoked both sorrow and burden. Interestingly, Nehemiah brought this burden to God in prayer. And it was out of that prayer that Nehemiah was moved to action. It’s not either/or. God will call us to prayer, and then to action that is prompted in the place of prayer. Join us as we give some attention to the link between prayer, action, and God’s beautiful work of restorative grace.
