“ Then they said, ‘Let us arise and build.’ So they put their hands to the good work ”

– Nehemiah 2:18

Nehemiah was moved upon hearing of the broken state of the wall in Jerusalem, and he responded in prayer and fasting for a number of days (Nehemiah 1:4). When he arrived in Jerusalem, he inspected the damage, and then determined what needed to be done. He then called the People to “arise and build”.

The story of Nehemiah serves as a metaphor for the gathering of God’s People into unity and purpose. In the historical account, it was through every person putting their hands to the task that the breaches were rebuilt, and the walls and gates restored. As we too come together in the spirit of unity and humility, we are doing our part to work as one People with one voice in praying for God to move in our city.

Arise, walk through the length and the breadth of the land,
for I will give it to you

– Genesis 13:17
