THIS WEEK WE'RE IN:
BUT I PRAYED - A LESSON IN PRAYER FROM NEHEMIAH
part TWO DIVE
In the Book of Nehemiah, we get a first-hand look into Nehemiah’s thoughts, passions and prayers. What strikes me as I study this book is how much he prays. I mean, this guy doesn’t do the normal ten-minute check-in every morning, tick off ‘Daily Prayer’ on his to-do list and continue on with his day. For Nehemiah, prayer is a lifestyle not a discipline. The word ‘pray’ appears eight times in the book and it isn’t in places you would expect...
The book opens with the title ‘Nehemiah’s Prayer’ in Nehemiah 1:1 – this whole book is going to show us the heart and prayer life of a leader who became the Governor of Judah, so we can take him as our mentor for prayer.
