This Series: Nehemiah – Putting Feet to Prayers
The Book of Nehemiah recounts how Nehemiah, the cupbearer to the Persian King, led the charge to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem to protect the Jewish people living in their homeland. He partnered with Ezra, the priest, who also has a book named after him in the Bible. Faced with incredible opposition, Nehemiah prayed fervently for the success of his endeavors, but he also did specific things to partner with God and put those prayers into action, a practice called putting feet to prayers.
This Week: Returning to Worship and the Law
Once the city walls were complete, Nehemiah, the governor, and Ezra, the priest, desired for the people to give thanks to God and to return their hearts to God. They put feet to these prayers by gathering the people to hear a reading of God’s Law. Also, while studying this Law, they rediscovered the Festival of Booths that had not been celebrated for centuries, and so they called the people to return to worshipping the God of their ancestors.
