We had run a seven week prayer siege for the schools in May through July, in the wake of the high failure rate of the third grade reading test. The first remedial test, given during the siege, had 2400 more students pass. I have been unable to find any report on the second remedial test.
Nehemiah 3:19-20 (ESV)
Next to him Ezer the son of Jeshua, ruler of Mizpah, repaired another section opposite the ascent to the armory at the buttress. After him Baruch the son of Zabbai repaired another section from the buttress to the door of the house of Eliashib the high priest.
Jeshua–Yahweh is salvation
Mizpah–watchtower or lookout
Zabbai–clemency of the Lord
Our Father in heaven,
You are our buttress, our armory, our aid, our salvation, our lookout. We thank You for blessing the third graders who took the remedial reading test. We thank You for Your clemency and the restoration of so many to their age group cohort. Blessed Father, we love You. Amen.
