Devotion for September 8

Nehemiah 1:11

Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man. I was cupbearer to the king.

May we learn to be as attentive to God in our prayers as God is attentive to us. We expect God 24/7 365 but when he wants us for more than one or two hours we balk, right up to the moment we need God’s attention.

Let us begin by putting in the time bending our knees, others ears and go out into the world and show God how much we are paying attention. Today!
