    The Lord God is a God of order and keeps his promises, He gave Nehemiah that burden to build the walls of Jerusalem and did not disappoint them by giving them the focus,zeal and unity to labour together. And that 's the leaders of today should ask of the Lord to help them in everything they do. It has been a blessing to me.
