“And they said to me, ‘The survivors who are left from the captivity in the province are there in great distress and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem is also broken down, and its gates are burned with fire.’ So it was, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned for many days; I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven” (Nehemiah 1:3-4).
Every miraculous life begins with prayer. Nehemiah was just an ordinary man living in a place far away from where God would eventually take him. He was burdened to pray for the honor of God and for the well-being of people who found themselves in trouble. Soon the miraculous opened before him. With God-given provision, protection and wisdom, he became a man who made a profound difference in his time. So, too, the way to the supernatural can open before you and I. We can make a difference. It all begins with prayer.
It’s time to pray.
