There are hundreds of passages about prayer in the Bible: teachings about prayer, mentions of prayer, and, of course, actual prayers. These are excellent resources for learning about the types of prayers, styles, content, when and where, and so much more. This series, Praying Through the Bible, examines each instance of a prayer passage, looking at the historical and cultural background and the context, the meaning of the prayer, and then offering a brief idea of how it might be used as a model.Each short study is also perfect for a brief analysis, a personal devotional study, or a group or class study.This volume contains the 25 prayers located in the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther. There are also introductions and summaries of the prayers for each book, offering an overview and context to better understand the prayers within the story of the book. An appendix is included, listing all the prayers under each of nine categories: Praise, Thanksgiving, Petitions, Intercessions, Prayers of Confession and Repentance, Laments, Prayer-Vows, Blessings, and Curses.
