Nehemiah 13:7-9     “and I came to Jerusalem and discovered the evil that Eliashib had done for Tobiah, in preparing a room for him in the courts of the house of God. And it grieved me bitterly; therefore I threw all the household goods of Tobiah out of the room. Then I commanded them to cleanse the rooms; and I brought back into them the articles of the house of God, with the grain offering and the frankincense.”
Nehemiah was grieved when he discovered the evil that Eliashib did for Tobiah – giving him space in the house of God.
  Let our prayers of agreement today be that God’s people will mourn over the compromise allowed in the church today.  Weak leadership has allowed room for people with evil in mind to occupy positions of influence.  There must be godly sorrow before real change comes through the actions of God’s committed people.
   Please pray for families of loved ones lost on the recent airline crashes and the one shot down in Ukraine. Pray that the situations be handled wisely by the world community, especially by our country.  Pray that truth be revealed concerning who was responsible.
    Also pray for the crisis in Israel concerning Gaza and Libya, Iraq, Syria, etc.  Pray for the protection of innocent lives and that the world community see the situation through the eyes of truth.  Finally, pray that the United States continue to support our strongest ally in that area of the world, Israel, for in doing so we will be blessed.  Gen 12:3
