“I said, “I beseech You, O Lord God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who preserves the covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments, let Your ear now be attentive and Your eyes open to hear the prayer of Your servant which I am praying before You now, day and night, on behalf of the sons of Israel Your servants.” (Nehemiah 1:5-6, NASB)
The last few weeks we have been looking at prayer in the lives of both Moses and Elijah. Each were place in unique positions requiring them to seek God for direction.
Samuel Chadwick raises an interesting question in his book, The Path of Prayer:
“What is the place and work of prayer in the life of ordinary people?”
(from page 63)
What is the place and work of the ordinary? The ones who go through the repetition of doing the same monotonous tasks day after day?
“Ordinary people may pray about commonplace things, and the answer to their prayers may be in an enlightened mind, a triumphant soul, a steadfast faith, and a holy life.”
(from The Path of Prayer, Samuel Chadwick, page 63)
Join me today at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE as we take a look at the prayer life of Nehemiah and the role of prayer in the lives of us ordinary people.
