Nehemiah – Becoming A Disciplined Leader

Lesson 1: "A Powerful Prayer Process" Nehemiah 1

"O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of your servant…" Neh. 1:11

Where and when does this all take place?

A powerful model!

7 Principles

#1) We must pray out of a heart of deep concern (Luke 18:4-7)

#2) We must make prayer a priority over other needs (Acts 13:1,2)

#3) We must pray persistently (Luke 18:7, Matt. 6:25-34)

#4) We must recognize that God is great and awesome (Matt. 6:9-13)

#5) We should also remind God of His promises to us (Heb. 10:19-22)

#6) We must acknowledge our unworthiness and sinfulness and failings (I John 1:9)

#7) We must be specific in our prayers if we want specific answers (Phil. 4:6, Matt. 7:7-11)
