Nehemiah’s Prayer (3)

Nehemiah returned to Jerusalem and started rebuilding the walls. But our Bible Reading tells us that some people did not want the walls to be built. These people said bad things about Nehemiah and the Jews who were working on the walls.
So what did Nehemiah do? He prayed to God and continued to work on the walls. But soon the bad men made more plans to stop the walls from being rebuilt. And again, Nehemiah prayed. He also “put guards on the walls to watch day and night” (verse 9b).
Sometimes people say bad things about us or try to stop us from obeying God. We need to pray and ask God to help us. God will give us comfort and encouragement and help us to continue doing right.
Are you facing a difficult situation today? Ask God to help you get through that situation. And also ask Him to help you know that He will always pay attention to your prayers.
