Prayer for Nehemiah 1:4

“When I heard these words, I sat down and wept. I mourned for a number of days, fasting and praying before the God of heaven.”

Heavenly Father, too often I have tried to deal with the problems in my own life, instead of flying to Your throne of grace for mercy and help in time of need. I pray that my faith may increase and my prayer life may reflect the continuous communion that the Lord Jesus enjoyed with You, in His earthly life. I pray that I may learn to approach You in confidence and in reverence. Help me to pray into Your will and purpose, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
