Ezra 1

Read chapter

Dear God,

Thank You for Your Word and for this chapter that reminds me of Your faithfulness and power. Thank You for the way You used King Cyrus to fulfill Your promises and bring about the restoration of Your people.

God, I pray that You would work in my life as You did in the lives of the Israelites, bringing about Your plans and purposes. Help me to trust in Your sovereignty and to follow Your leading, even when it may not make sense to me.

I ask for Your guidance and protection, and for the strength to overcome any obstacles that stand in the way of Your will for my life. May Your glory be revealed through me, just as it was through the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem.

Thank You for hearing my prayer, and for Your constant presence in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
