The Power of Prayer

As I have grown in my Christian life, I have realized that prayer is very powerful. Our Bible verses today from the book of Nehemiah tell us about the power of prayer.
Nehemiah was helping the Jews rebuild the walls around Jerusalem. But there were some men who did not want the walls completed. These men spread rumors so that the people would become scared and stop working on the walls. So Nehemiah prayed to God, “God, make me strong” (verse 9b). God answered Nehemiah’s prayer. He kept him safe from his enemies. God also helped the Jews finish rebuilding the walls in 52 days!
There are times when I am afraid or unsure of what I should do. That’s when I pray and ask God to be with me and help me. Pray to God today — He will pay attention to your prayer!
