Fasting and Prayer for Protection

Ezra 8

21 Then I j proclaimed a fast there at the river of Ahava, that we might k humble ourselves before our God, to seek from Him the l right way for us and our little ones and all our possessions. 22 For m I was ashamed to request of the king an escort of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy on the road, because we had spoken to the king, saying, n "The hand of our God is upon all those for o good who seek Him, but His power and His wrath are p against all those who q forsake Him." 23 So we fasted and entreated our God for this, and He r answered our prayer.
