The book of Nehemiah.

Nehemiah was the king’s cup bearer. He was an important man in the Kingdom. And people from Jerusalem came and he asked about Jerusalem. They told him that the work of the temple has stopped. The people have abandon it and the walls are still broken down. And Nehemiah began to weep and to cry. For 3 days Nehemiah fasted and prayed to God. His prayer was of repentance. And the people with him also fasted and prayed. Nehemiah prayed for mercy and forgiveness. He wanted God to change the hearts of the people. He wanted the work to continue. His heart ached and his face showed it. A life of repentance is what we live. We need to ask God to forgive us on a daily basis because we’re not perfect. We aren’t to let sin dominate our lives. Prayer and fasting brings everything into focus. We begin to see what’s in our heart so that God can deal with us. Nehemiah prayed and fasted for 3 days. And God changed his world.
