Commentary by Pastor Michael White:

“Then the king said to me, ‘What do you request?’ So I prayed to the God of heaven” (Neh 2:4). Nehemiah was knee-deep in the most important conversation of his life. The king asked him what he desired; but before verbalizing his request, he stopped and sought God. God will speak to you if you listen for Him – even in the middle of a conversation. Nehemiah waited to answer the king until he had the chance to pray, and I believe that is a template for how we should organize our lives. When a big opportunity comes your way: pray to the God of heaven! When you need to make a decision, no matter how big or how small: pray to the God of heaven! Pray to God without ceasing, and He will make His will known.

Prayer:

Father, help me to remember to drop whatever I’m doing and make time for you. I need to pray to You before making every major decision. I need to pray to You before making any minor decision! Remind me to pray to You at all times!
