"I, Ezra, rose in my wretchedness, and with cloak and mantle torn I fell on my knees, stretching out my hands to the LORD, my God."

I just find it interesting after commenting on the conference I went to yesterday that in today's reading Ezra tears apart all that holds him back from the Lord, his shame, his wicked deeds and his guilt, and stands with his wretchedness bared. "In a short time", mercy came to Him from the Lord.
