Text: Nehemiah 1: 1-11.
“As soon as I heard these words I sat down and wept and mourned for days, and I continued fasting and praying before the God of heaven,” verse 4 [ESV]. Nehemiah wept on hearing that the wall of Jerusalem was broken down and its gates were burnt with fire. The walls in Jeremiah’s days were very essential for security reasons as they protected people from enemy raids and maintained security of a city state. Nehemiah also mourned over his people because the then leaders of the land had stopped them from rebuilding their walls, leaving them exposed and vulnerable.
As a Christian you should weep and mourn over Uganda. The name of the Lord is blasphemed by false prophets and apostles. When you see
ungodly alliances being formed between darkness and light and in the process; there is failure to advance the cause of God’s glory. However, as Christians we should stand firm in Christ for we are more than conquerors. Amen.
Meditate on verse 4. How are you going to apply it to your life?
Father, forgive us as a nation because we have defamed Your name.
Heal our land. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen
