Nehemiah 2:4 ” The King said to me, ‘What is it you want?’ Then I prayed to the God of heaven and I answered the King…”

King Artaxerxes asked Nehemiah what he wanted…but before he responded, Nehemiah prayed.  It could be called an “as we go” prayer.  This type of supplication doesn’t need to be long… just the length of a deep breath. It doesn’t need to be in depth…a simple “Give me wisdom,  Lord!” will suffice.  The Lord is with us always…His presence there in the middle of all situations…so why don’t we take a moment to seek His guidance before blurting out something we may later regret.
