Church, Be Like Nehemiah: Pray, Then Act

A man wearing orange and praying, Why the church must be like Nehemiah and pray before we act

On this National Day of Prayer, as the country continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic and injustice, we can look to a Nehemiah for guidance. Thousands of years ago, Nehemiah received news from his Jewish countrymen that the wall of Jerusalem had been destroyed and its gates had been burned to the ground.

We must identify “structural power imbalances” and “take action against injustice” as defined by the SPLC and similar groups.
