“Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.” I was cupbearer to the king.”
-Nehemiah was greatly distressed by the news that the walls of Jerusalem had been destroyed & the gates burned with fire, so he fasted & prayed. As the cupbearer of king Artaxerxes & his close confidant, he was not only responsible of tasting the quality of wine & checking for poisoned drinks but was respected & honored in the Persian Empire for his wise council. Through the grace of God he was granted the relevant letters & support to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem. God directed him in skill & knowledge to successfully rebuild the wall & restore worship in Jerusalem. As His disciples, God calls us to pray always, restore worship in our various environments & exhibit Christ likeness for the glory of His name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul & all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul & forget not all His benefits. Grant us wisdom, skill, intelligence, knowledge & a discerning spirit Lord; so that we may apply skill in all we do & explore various opportunities that You present unto us. Guide us in our various gifts & talents so that we may be successful in project implementation; especially those that are geared towards uplifting others peoples lives; for the glory of Your name. May Your favor go before us Father so that we may succeed in all things. Open the eyes of our hearts that we may see You everyday everlasting Father. Amen
