Discussion for Nehemiah 1:7

  • James A. Williams for verse 7
    This is one of the great failings of the church today. There is no real preaching about repentance coming from the pulpit today. The way to true blessing and prosperity is to obey God. To Obey God the first time is better than seeking grace after the deed is done. Grace is not devine slack for people to sin with. This is a prayer of true repentance. God give us men that will preach like this once again.
