Today's reading Nehemiah 1:1 - Nehemiah 13:14
" Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God." Nehemiah 4:9 KJB
Nehemiah had a huge task ahead of him yet he was not detoured by what others were saying or doing. He knew what had to be done. He knew it would not happen unless the trusted God to get it done.
Even when you are out numbered and it does not seem like what you know needs to get done is getting done, you need to keep praying and giving it to God because God will bless your good works like he did Nehemiah's.
