Rebuilding with Nehemiah: Chapter 4, Day 4

Thursday: Prayer and Preparation

Text: 9 But we prayed to our God and guarded the city day and night to protect ourselves. (Nehemiah 4:9, NLT)

They prayed and kept on working.

Prayer does not negate our participation.

No one got up from prayer and said, “Okay, catch you guys later. This one’s on God and I’m going home until he comes through.”

Nope. They prayed and then they guarded the city, day and night.

WP Neh dev 4-4 without ceasing

This is what it means to pray without ceasing, and to join God where he’s working.

Put hands and feet to your prayers. Trust God and keep working.
