Sermon Notes

Ezra 8 Day

January 30, 2022

Psalm 67:1-2 | May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us – so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.

Ezra 8:21-23 | There by the Ahava Canal, I proclaimed a fast so that we might humble ourselves before our God and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions. I was ashamed to ask the king for soldiers to protect us from enemies on the road, because we had told the king, “The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to him, but his great anger is against all who forsake him.” So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer.
