Nehemiah 2:4 Then the king said unto me, For what dost thou make request? So I prayed to the God of heaven.
I have a pastor friend that calls this a flare prayer. It is a prayer you send up real quick when you do not have much time. You know you need God. There is not time for long agonizing prayer. So you just shoot one to heavens and quickly.
Nehemiah gets an opportunity to talk to the king. He knows that he needs the king to answer favorably. He also knows that it is God that will touch the king’s heart and bring about what Nehemiah is asking.
Do you realize that it is not your person that accomplishes things? It is God. Do you know that it is not your friendship but God’s favor? Pray. Pray believing God will answer.
