Nehemiah’s Prayers

Sometimes Nehemiah fasted and prayed for days (read Nehemiah 1:4).

Other times he included prayer in his conversation with others. The king asked, “Well, how can I help you?” With a prayer to the God of heaven, I replied (Nehemiah 2:4).

HIs narrative of the Jews in Jerusalem was interspersed with prayer. Here’s one example: “These men had an excellent reputation . . . Remember this good deed, O my God (Nehemiah 13:13-14).

Nehemiah shows us how to pray all the time.
