Calling and Prayer (Neh 1.5-11)

Sometimes God calls us to do unexpected things—perhaps life-changing, perhaps just altering a daily course. But rather than dive right into action, the right thing might be to spend time in serious, open prayer, like Nehemiah.

Podcast 11 – Intercession and Petition for a Child 
(Gen 25.21, 22)

In the ancient world, having children was perhaps more important than today, since they viewed having children as the only way to gain “immortality.” Just as Abraham and Sarah did not conceive for a long time, so also their son Isaac and his wife Rebekah could not conceive. Their story, and their prayers, can help us learn how to petition and inquire of God.

The Praying Through the Bible project began in 2010 as a new way study and practice prayer. Its goal is to study every passage that even mentions prayer, beginning in Genesis. Each post explores each prayer with discussions of background, meaning, and application.

Summary of the Prayers of Ezra

The prayers found in the book of Ezra take place during a unique time in the history of Israel: the King of Persia sends Ezra to lead a large group of Jews back to their homeland after decades of exile. They are to rebuild the Temple and restore their religious practices and worship.

In such a unique period, we might think the prayer would be so specific that they would offer us little to learn for our own prayers. But, like so many other prayers in the Bible, there are always new perspective and insights.
