Descendants of Asaph

Nehemiah 11:22-23 (NLT)
The chief officer of the Levites in Jerusalem was Uzzi son of Bani, son of Hashabiah, son of Mattaniah, son of Mica, a descendant of Asaph, whose family served as singers at God’s Temple. Their daily responsibilities were carried out according to the terms of a royal command.

Uzzi–the Lord is my strength
Bani–to build
Hashabiah–regarded by the Lord
Mattaniah–gift of the Lord
Mica–Who is like unto the Lord?
Asaph–who gathers together

O Father,
We cry out for the synergy of the ages in the Mississippi Delta. Teach us how to tap the wells of salvation dug by our ancestors. Teach us how to block the generational curses that are robbing the Mississippi Delta of the identity that You have ordained for it.
Release the generational blessings of the Christians, like a cup that runs over, like the precious oil of consecration poured on the head. May the daily responsibilities of the Christians and their descendants be carried out according to the terms of Your royal command. Amen.
