Your Prayer

123

Listen . . . 

Think on This . . . 

The ancient man, Nehemiah, received disturbing information.   It’s clear that it impacted him to the depths of the soul.  Even so,  it’s easier to let something go than to proceed when there seems to be no clear way through.  On one hand, he did not have power as a cupbearer and would be expected to carry out his responsibilities for the king.  However, he had the enormous privilege of knowing the king. 

In the centuries since this ancient day situation, we ask the question, “How does someone know what’s theirs to do?” 

Meditate . . . Be still and know God . . . 

Nehemiah made it clear that he mourned, fasted, and prayed (Nehemiah (1:4)) when he heard about Jerusalem’s dilemma.  This course of action produced certainty and confidence that God had more for him to do.

Take the time to define or re-define . . .  your why . . . and make it your prayer. 

Think on This . . . 

Nehemiah . . . knew there was to be more.  The passion of what could be . . . became a knowing it was to be . . . through his initial response.

The path of prayer brings us to the place God has intended for us . . . to live fully . . . with passion and purpose.
