“Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them” (Nehemiah 4:9).
The threat was serious and imminent. The wall in Jerusalem was being rebuilt under the leadership of Nehemiah. The enemies were being marshalled by Sanballat, Tobiah, and the Arabians, Ammonites, and the Ashdodites (Nehemiah 4:7). What a precious balance is the approach of the Godly Nehemiah. He called on them to pray, to set a watch, and keep on working. I cannot begin to imagine how many situations for which this strategy would be just the perfect and balanced approach. Keep praying! Keep watching! Keep working!
