Commentary by Pastor Michael White:

“Then the king said to me, ‘What do you request?’ So I prayed to the God of heaven” (Neh 2:4). Nehemiah was knee-deep in the most important conversation of his life. The king asked him what he desired; but before verbalizing his request, he stopped and sought God. God will speak to you if you listen for Him – even in the middle of a conversation. Nehemiah waited to answer the king until he had the chance to pray, and I believe that is a template for how we should organize our lives. When a big opportunity comes your way: pray to the God of heaven! When you need to make a decision, no matter how big or how small: pray to the God of heaven! Pray to God without ceasing, and He will make His will known.


Father, help me to remember to drop whatever I’m doing and make time for you. I need to pray to You before making every major decision. I need to pray to You before making any minor decision! Remind me to pray to You at all times!
