Why was Nehemiah distraught?

Nehemiah heard about Jerusalem’s walls – and it left him feeling distraught because God’s glorious plan to save a people for Himself is under threat.

Nehemiah wants to make sure that God’s people will be protected – so that God’s promises will be protected.

Time for action: PRAY (1:1–11)

As Nehemiah hears about the trouble in Jerusalem his first response is to pray. His prayer is all about God’s redemptive plan.

Time for action: PLAN (2:1–8)

Once he has prayed he puts his plan into motion by asking for imperial support for the work ahead.

Time for action: ACT (2:9–20)

Because God’s gracious hand was on him, his requests are granted. So Nehemiah puts his plan into action to begin this good work.

Now what?

If we are truly concerned for God’s work to continue through us we will study God’s Word, pray for the task ahead, and call others to join us in this glorious work.

We’ll also pray that nothing will distract us from the task before us to make disciples of all nations.
