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.
