We continue with the series “Embracing Revival: Serving Christ With Excellence” by rounding off the topic “Effective and Fervent Prayer Accomplishes Much“. Today we reference Nehemiah 2:11-16.
Nehemiah’s prayer resulted in a response from the king that could only be described as exceedingly, abundantly, above all that he could ask or think. His request had been bold and audacious. He had sought God in fervent and effective prayer, and He had answered in ways that exceeded Nehemiah’s expectations.
As we contemplate the focus of this series, what does the response of Nehemiah’s enemies tell us? We are in a spiritual battle. Satan is the sworn enemy of the church. Christ defeated Satan at the cross but he has not accepted defeat and the battle rages on. The ultimate weapon in the Christian’s armory is prayer.
