Before You Start Your Big Project

“As soon as I heard these words I sat down and wept and mourned for days, and I continued fasting and praying before the God of heaven.”

Nehemiah 1:4 (ESV)

Nehemiah held a powerful position for a great king when he came to realize the state of affairs back at his hometown.  Because of the burden that he felt, he knew he was going to have to take action.  Before his first step, he prepared his heart by fasting and praying.  Remember, fasting focuses and intensifies our prayers.  He did a spiritual house cleaning and repented of his sins and the sins of his people.  The rest is history.  He succeeded in his amazing project to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem because he took time to prepare.  What great project is before you?  Have you fasted and prayed yet?
