Building The Future Now (Part 1) -- Don't Despair, Turn to God in Prayer (Nehemiah 1:1-11)

Dr. David Stevens, January 7, 2018

Part of the Building The Future Now series, preached at the Sunday Morning service.


The book of Nehemiah records the efforts of the people of Israel to return from exile and rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. It wasn’t an easy task. Conquered and exiled to the land of Persia because of their sin against God, they were suffering the due penalty for their sin. But God was gracious. He allowed Nehemiah and other godly people to return to the promised land and begin rebuilding the walls and the temple. Is there something in your life that God has called you to do, but seems impossible? “Don’t Despair, Turn to God in Prayer.”
