January 17 – Evening


When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.

(Nehemiah 1:4)


Dear God,

You are the great and mighty God who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and obey his commands. Just as Nehemiah weeps and mourns for his people, I come before You with a heavy heart, burdened by the challenges and struggles of my own life and of those around me. I seek Your guidance and strength to help me overcome these obstacles and to be a source of encouragement and support to others. I pray that You give me the wisdom and courage to face the difficulties that lie ahead and the determination to bring about positive change in my life and in the lives of others.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
