And because the gracious hand of my God was upon me, the king granted my requests.
I want God’s gracious hand on me! I want Him to be working way ahead of me so that by the time I arrive there it is as well received as Nehemiah was before the Artaxerxes. Earnest prayer cannot be undervalued here. Before Artaxerxes was moved, Nehemiah was! I need to be pliable in the hand of God.
Move and mold me, Father!
