In Nehemiah chapter 9, we see the nation of Israel come together before the Lord to pray, offering praise, confession, thanksgiving, and petition to God. How does this time of unified prayer contribute to the overall rebuilding effort that Nehemiah is leading all throughout this book? We see that prayer is absolutely essential for the unification and growth of God's people - even for us today.

Rebuilding Through Worship

In Nehemiah 12, we get a picture of the Israelites worshipping after they have finished rebuilding. The way that they engage in this worship as a community is notable in a few specific ways, and they help to inform how we should engage in worship in our church today. Listen to this message from Pastor Jay and be reminded of what true worship is.
