Nehemiah 3 (VOICE)
Joiada (Paseah’s son) and Meshullam (Besodeiah’s son) rebuilt the old gate. In the same way, they framed it, set its doors in place, and secured it with bolts and bars.
Paseah–passing over, halting, lame
Besodeiah–counsel of the Lord
Our Father in heaven,
You know that we in the Mississippi Delta are a halting, lame people. Have mercy. We thank You for befriending us and guiding us with Your counsel. Assist us to rebuild the old portals of holiness in this land. Amen.
