you pulled me out of darkness

Mercy Lord ! Comfort us all, who are grieving…

“To pray as Nehemiah prayed in his hour of need is a resource at the command of the Christian under circumstances when other forms of prayer may be impossible…… In times of sudden difficulty or peril the heart may send up its cry for help to One who has pledged Himself to come to the aid of His faithful, believing ones whenever they call upon Him. In every circumstance, under every condition, the soul weighed down with grief and care, or fiercely assailed by temptation, may find assurance, support, and succor in the unfailing love and power of a covenant-keeping God.” Ellen G. White, Prophets and Kings 631.2, Regarding Nehemiah ch 1-2 {PK 631.2}
