Prayer Points for August 2023
Here is the prayer points for August 2023. To read the introduction to 12 Days prophetic prayer and fasting, please GO HERE
Nehemiah 2:4-5, 8
Nehemiah 2:4-5, 8 (NKJV) Then the king said to me, “What do you request?” So I prayed to the God of heaven. 5. And I said to the king, “If it pleases the king, and if your servant has found favor in your sight, I ask that you send me to Judah, to the city of my fathers’ tombs, that I may rebuild it.” …8. “and a letter to Asaph the keeper of the king’s forest, that he must give me timber to make beams for the gates of the citadel which [pertains] to the temple, for the city wall, and for the house that I will occupy.” And the king granted [them] to me according to the good hand of my God upon me.
God’s Hand of Favour
Favour is the irresistible hand of God, that positions a man for preferential treatment by others. God’s favour makes room for all other kinds of favour; it precedes favour with man.
Nehemiah needs favour in the sight of the king, and he understood that, until God’s hand of favour rests upon a man, he cannot enjoy favour with others. When the king asked him for his desire, he did not rush to respond, he went to God in prayer, to secure God’s hand of favour, before he presented his request for the king’s favour.
All the things Nehemiah requested for, were granted without an exemption. He knew it wasn’t his eloquence, or his excellent service that made that a reality. Nehemiah testified by saying, “And the king granted them to me according to the good hand of my God upon me. Another version says, .” Since I enjoyed the good favor of my God, the king granted my requests.” (Nehemiah 2:8 NABRE)
When God’s hand of favour is at work in a man’s life, he enjoys favourable outcomes in life, that is beyond human explanation and analysis. Your little effort produces mighty result when the mighty hand of God is behind your affairs. For this reason, we shall be entreating and engaging God’s hand of favour, for August 2023.
