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.
