Nehemiah Prays for Israel

Today I read Nehemiah 9 where Nehemiah offers a great prayer to Heavenly Father.  It always makes me wonder when I see a prayer recorded in the scriptures.  Prayer with Heavenly Father is such a private thing that to make it public like that is very strange to me.  And it is not a temple dedication like we have in the Doctrine and Covenants, but rather just a prayer that Nehemiah offers on behalf of the children of Israel.  I'm not sure I would remember giving a prayer like that for one thing or comfortable having it recorded in the scriptures for all generations to see like that.  I think for me I will keep my prayers private.  Until tomorrow.
