Prayers of the Broken Hearted

Before Nehemiah prayed about rebuilding the broken walls, he first prayed for a healing of the broken people – including himself.

Are you more concerned about the “nation” or about the people? About events or about lives?

Is the burden in your prayers more about the church building and numbers or about the individuals and families?

Is your prayer list filled with things or names?

May our hearts break for people and for the healing of our relationship with the Lord. Looking at his first prayer, this is what broke Nehemiah’s heart.

About Todd K Estes

In this journey called Life, it gets a bit muddy - But Jesus sees beyond the mud and sees the person He created, the person He loves, and the person He is still working on. I am one of those persons - and so are you. I am a sold-out follower of Jesus, husband way out of my league, father to a great son, part of the family of God, and pastor of a great church family - Evergreen Baptist in Appomattox.
