Nehemiah’s prayer shows us a very critical fact: Prayer is ALWAYS the right answer to what is going on in life. Whether you are facing a hardship, or a need for renewal, or asking for God's intervention -- prayer should always be our first response.

Renewal and reform are constant in the life of faith. Yet … we always lend towards compromise, failure, and disobedience. It is important that keep vigilant not only of what we've been taught, but of one another as well.

The declaration and mission of Nehemiah is more than just rebuilding a wall, it's a calling for men and women to return to living fully for the God in heaven. Doesn't the church today have the exact same mission? Why are we not living it?

In the Kingdom of God, the greatest accomplishments come from unity. We are supposed to have unity in the church; a love for God and others because when we have unity of purpose it really is amazing what can be done!

Godly character and how you live your life is always your greatest defense against the enemy. Nehemiah appoints people who are faithful to God and trustworthy to follow God's commands to help him secure this treasured city.

How do we respond to God’s word? Is it a casual experience, or something that we treasure every day we are able? Are we reminded of what God has done because we spend time in His word? How we treat His word is a tremendous invitation to others.

Would we cry out to God to confess that we have sinned and He is just? Sometimes it is appropriate to cry out as a community for God’s mercy. The Israelite's knew enough to cry out to God for mercy … can’t we?

As Jerusalem's wall is dedicated, four critical points are shown to us: Each person is valuable to God; Everything done for His kingdom is remembered; Spiritual growth requires time to pass, and for people to be led; God should always be praised.
