Nehemiah 4:9 Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.
Nehemiah knows his enemies are everywhere. He is fully expecting an attack so what does he do. Nehemiah prays and sets a watch. He does what he should do while asking God to do what only He can do.
So many think prayer is the answer without their action. The farmer plants his field and prays. God does hear and answer prayer but not for the lazy who refuses to plant the field.
Are you praying without working? Are you trying to blame God for your laziness? Pray but set the watch.
