Nehemiah 4
Nehemiah 5
Nehemiah 6
Acts 22

Did you see all that Nehemiah had to overcome to rebuild Jerusalem’s wall and re-set the gates? His tasks included efficiently organizing the work, addressing enemies and critics, correcting the charging of usury from among the Jews and avoiding political deceit.  He let nothing stop him and the Lord’s work.  I find one of the shortest prayers in scripture reassuring & worthy of repeating when we feel challenged:

Nehemiah 6:  They were all trying to frighten us, thinking, “Their hands will get too weak for the work, and it will not be completed.” But I prayed, “Now strengthen my hands.”
