World-changing Prayers (Nehemiah 1) | Facing Tests (Job 1)
Forgiveness (Genesis 50)


It was not Nehemiah’s great leadership skills that accomplished all that Nehemiah had done. His gifting, skills and resources all had an important place, of course, but they played a secondary part. The major thing needed was prayer, a certain kind of prayer, prayers that change the world.

Below we see them praying for the seven states of Myanmar.

Nehemiah 1:4-11: Video | Audio | Powerpoint | Reading


Nehemiah made a life-changing prayer. The world was greatly impacted by that prayer. The wall in Jerusalem was built. The people of God could protect their worship culture.

God is so desirous of changing things about us that He wants to use any child of God that would open their hearts to His purposes.

Praying for Myanmar

Don’t be confused. It has nothing to do with your talent, gifts, wealth, status. God will use you where you are. Most important is that you seek His will and bind Him to His promise. These kind of world and life changing prayers are at the base of all of God’s work here on earth.

Now it is your turn.

And My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14=> Revival 1 | Revival 2 | Revival 3).
