Bible: Nehemiah 1:5-7

1:5 Then I said, “Please, O LORD God of heaven, great and awesome God, who keeps his loving covenant 1  with those who love him and obey 2  his commandments, 1:6 may your ear be attentive and your eyes be open to hear the prayer of your servant that I am praying to you today throughout both day and night on behalf of your servants the Israelites. I am confessing the sins of the Israelites that we have committed 3  against you – both I myself and my family 4  have sinned. 1:7 We have behaved corruptly against you, not obeying the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments that you commanded your servant Moses.
