  • NEHEMIAH THE LEADER
    • (Neh.1)
    • PRAYING FOR SERVANTS OF GOD
    NEHEMIAH THE LEADER – PRAY-ER
  • I. PRAYING FOR HIS PERSONAL LIFE 1) Spiritual Growth But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen – 2 Peter 3:18 2) Unity Among workers My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me – John 17:20,21 3) Fruit of the spirit But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law – Galatians 5:22,23
    • 4) Peace of God to guard the mind
    • Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God – Phil 4:6,7
    • 5) To be enthusiastic in Ministry
    • Encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word –
    • 2 Thess 2:17
    • 6) For Physical protection
    • Pray that I may be rescued from the unbelievers in Judea and that my service in Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints there – Romans 15:31
    • .
    • 7) Spiritual Protection
    • Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints – Ephesians 6:10-18
  • II. FAMILY LIFE
    • 1) Relationship between husband & wife
    • Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ – Ephesians 5:21
    • 2) Wife should submit to husband
    • Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord – Ephesians 5:22
    • 3) Husbands to love the wife
    • Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself – Ephesians 5:25-28
    • 4) For good relationship with Parents
    • Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. "Honor your father and mother"—which is the first commandment with a promise— "that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth – Ephesians 6:1-3
    • 5) For good relationship with Children
    • Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of
    • the Lord – Ephesian 6:4
    • 1) To make disciples
    • Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.“ – Matt 28:19
    • 2) Should preach the word effectively & courageously
    • Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should – Ephesians 6:19-20
    III. MINISTRY OF THE SERVANT
    • 3) To be Flexible
    •   Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.
