Nehemiah 1
 
Four things to notice about his prayer.
1. He puts God in His proper place by calling Him a great and awesome God. He calls Him the God of love.
2. Nehemiah took responsibility for his sins. He didn’t excuse them.
  • He confessed them.
3. Nehemiah reminded God of His promise if His people would return to him and obey his commands.
4. He asked God for HELP.
  • A full 4 months pass between when Nehemiah’s hears this news and prays, and when he acts. How often do you and I have such patience? 
Four Things to Notice as they rebuild the walls
1. God’s Plan is simply bigger than ours and involves more people than just you and me.
  • Ephesians 4:11-12
2. If you are doing God’s work and right in the middle of His will, you will still have adversity and hard times.
3. If you don’t have adversity and hard times, you might not be doing the work required.
4. Once we are operating in the center of God’s will, He truly can work miracles.
  • Nehemiah did in just 52 days what had been a problem for over 100 years.
  • 52 days from now is Wednesday, March 9, 2022.
  • 4 months from now is Monday, May 15, 2022.
5. God’s work will go on with me or without me, but it always goes better for me if I do it with Him on His side.
