Nehemiah was a man of prayer
Nehemiah was a man of prayer. Throughout that Old Testament book, we see him either praying or encouraging others to do the same. In chapter 1, after he heard about the condition of the wall and gate in Jerusalem, Nehemiah went right to prayer...
"As soon as I heard these words (about the wall and gate in Jerusalem) I sat down and wept and mourned for days, and I continued fasting and praying before the God of heaven" (Verse 4; English Standard Version).
Nehemiah knew that the wall and gate in the city where God's temple was had to be rebuild, but he knew that the first item of business was prayer and knocking on the door of heaven.
There are many things that need to get down for the Lord, but our number one priority is prayer!
Praying for revival!
