    I'm looking for the book and verse were pray. O lord the great and awesome God who keep his covenant of love with all who love him and obey his commands. So I turn to lord god and pleaded with him in prayer and petition on behalf of another or other who desperately need god intervention.

    Did anyone know that Ezra and Nehemiah were the last 2 books of the O.T. written, Nehemiah being the very last, before the 400 yrs. silence between the Old and New testaments? There were writings during those 400 yrs., but even the writers didn't consider them inspired of God, is why they are not included in the canon of His word. Nehemiah was the last INSPIRED word of God for the O.T.

    To Ms. Gaddis - that was very insightful. Yes, we can build our walls - without prayer at the same time for the lost. It's prayer and only prayer that will give us a burden for souls.
