Broken City…Broken Heart…Pleading the Promises

Recently while reading Nehemiah 1, this thought struck me: Broken walls lead to a broken and repentant heart that desperately pleads and trusts the promises of God.

Father, break our hearts with the things that break your heart. Give us grace to confess and not condone or excuse sin. We have forgotten you days without number. Like you did for Nehemiah,  please grant us mercy and favor before the authorities.
