Nehemiah 1:5-11 NLT

5 Then I said, "O LORD, God of heaven, the great and awesome God who keeps his covenant of unfailing love with those who love him and obey his commands,
6 listen to my prayer! Look down and see me praying night and day for your people Israel. I confess that we have sinned against you. Yes, even my own family and I have sinned!
7 We have sinned terribly by not obeying the commands, laws, and regulations that you gave us through your servant Moses.
8 "Please remember what you told your servant Moses: 'If you sin, I will scatter you among the nations.
9 But if you return to me and obey my commands, even if you are exiled to the ends of the earth, I will bring you back to the place I have chosen for my name to be honored.'
10 "We are your servants, the people you rescued by your great power and might.
11 O Lord, please hear my prayer! Listen to the prayers of those of us who delight in honoring you. Please grant me success now as I go to ask the king a for a great favor. Put it into his heart to be kind to me."In those days I was the king's cup-bearer."
