Ezra 10:6 (NLT) Regarding Israel’s taking pagan wives
Then Ezra left the front of the Temple of God and went to the room of Jehohanan son of Eliashib. He spent the night there without eating or drinking anything. He was still in mourning because of the unfaithfulness of the returned exiles.
Eliashib–whom God will restore
Ezra’s repentance included fasting in a space Jehovah granted, by an inheritance of restoration.
O Lord, may we in the United States likewise turn to You in repentance. Open our hearts. Grant us those intersections of time and space to pray and fast. Restore our nation’s inheritance. Amen.
