Nehemiah 9:6 


“You are the Lord, you alone. You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them; and you preserve all of them; and the host of heaven worships you.





The prayer is intended to instruct the readers. It gives us a survey of the history of Israel with emphasis on certain events in the life of the Chosen People. It is especially helpful to read this prayer through the eyes of the returned exiles. They had experienced many of the same things their forefathers had. We, too, can identify with their appreciation of God’s grace, since we have seen these things in God’s dealings with us.


This is one of the great prayers of the Old Testament. It praises God for His character and

conduct. It begins, as the Bible does, by describing God’s greatness seen in His creation

of the cosmos, and then His grace and faithfulness in calling Abraham, promising him the land of Canaan, and fulfilling that promise. Instead of being self consumed, we need to start praising God.


Memory Verse: Numbers 23:19


God’s wisdom is like the rainbow, in symmetry, beauty, and variety.
