Nehemiah Fought His Enemies by Prayer

 

Neh prayed

When Nehemiah and his men began to rebuild the walls, they encountered great resistance from Sanbalet (a Samaritan), from Arabs, from the Ammonites, and from the Ashdodites; and they conspired together to attack Jerusalem and create confusion.

But Nehemiah did not retaliate against them in anger or think to take revenge.  Instead he prayed,

 Hear, O our God, for we are despised; turn their reproach on their own heads, and give them as plunder to a land of captivity! 5Do not cover their iniquity, and do not let their sin be blotted out from before You; for they have provoked You to anger before the builders (Nehemiah 4:4-5).

 the set a watchWell, as it happed, the people set a watch against them day and night, and in fifty-two days the walls were finished (Neh. 6:15).

  1. I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours these days, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours.

    It’s beautiful value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and
    bloggers made just right content material as you probably did,
    the net will likely be much more helpful than ever before.
