Nehemiah: A Life of Prayer
Wednesdays, April 4 - May 9
Pastor Mike Hughes and Ryan Cordle will lead a six-session study prepared by our bishop of the Northwestern Ohio Synod, Bishop Daniel Beaudoin.
Bishop Beaudoin writes, "I want to encourage you to open your Bible, gather with a group of friends, and learn what God desires to teach you. But, be careful. Be very, very careful, because God’s Word has the power to transform people and communities from who we are into the people and communities that God longs for us to be. During the time of Nehemiah, the city of Jerusalem experienced a similar transformation. At the dedication of the rebuilt city wall, we read, 'They offered great sacrifices that day and rejoiced, for God had made them rejoice with great joy; the women and children also rejoiced. The joy of Jerusalem was heard far away' (Nehemiah 12:43). May we also experience the great joy of God, the gracious love of Jesus, and the power of the Holy Spirit to renew and transform our lives and communities. Prayer and God’s Word has that power. "
