Prayer and Work
When Nehemiah built the fallen city wall his weapon of war was in his hand. The labourers carried on their work with one hand supporting their load and with the other hand the held on to their weapon, and each of the builders wore his sword at his side as he worked. Nehemiah 4:17. Intercession for the Church, which is Christ’s body begins in anguish of heart, but like Nehemiah we need to pray – and work with our sword in our hand: for our weapons of war are mighty through God to pull down satanic strongholds.
