God is a God of mercy. As the Israelites came into the land with Joshua as their leader, God went before them. The sting of death can't harm us if we're followers of Christ. Also, God sent the prophets out of love, to urge people to repent. Other covered points included the facts that prayer is much larger than just covering what we want, and God is worthy of our trust and faith.
Here's some of the featured scripture:
"Now in the twenty and fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, and with sackclothes, and earth upon them.
And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.
And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of the Lord their God one fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped the Lord their God." Nehemiah 9:1-3, KJV
