Nehemiah 3:6-12   Thought/Prayer:  His Daughters Helped.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Moreover the old gate repaired Jehoiada the son of Paseah, and Meshullam the son of Besodeiah; they laid the beams thereof, and set up the doors thereof, and the locks thereof, and the bars thereof. And next to them repaired Melatiah the Gibeonite, and Jadon the Meronothite, the men of Gibeon, and of Mizpah, to the throne of the governor on this side the river. Next to him repaired Uzziel the son of Harhaiah, of the goldsmiths. Next to him also repaired Hananiah the son of one of the apothecaries, and they fortified Jerusalem to the broad wall. And next to them repaired Rephaiah the son of Hur, the ruler of the half part of Jerusalem. And next to them repaired Jedaiah the son of Harumaph, even over against his house. And next to him repaired Hattush the son of Hashabniah. Malchijah the son of Harim, and Hashub the son of Pahathmoab, repaired the other piece, and the tower of the furnaces. And next to him repaired Shallum the son of Halohesh, the ruler of the half part of Jerusalem, he and his daughters.”  (AKJV)  Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com

When Nehemiah was cupbearer for the King of Persia, Artaxerxes, the king noticed that Nehemiah was downcast and asked him why.  Nehemiah was troubled that the walls of Jerusalem were no longer standing.  The king granted him permission to go to Jerusalem and start the rebuilding of the walls.

As we see in this passage, and in those before it and after it, many many persons helped in restoring the walls, working side by side.  What might be considered striking here is that the man Shallum had his daughters working in the effort.  This might be considered unusual in those times, when women were not considered to be equal to men, with men being the leaders of tribes and families – with family inheritance coming down through the male heirs.

But here we have daughters working along side their father. God lets us know here that there was a place for women to contribute even if societal life limited leadership to the men.  It seems a big encouragment to women that God makes a point to mention this father/daughter team.

God wants to team with women today, women who are struggling against an unwanted pregnancy; women who are dejected because there seems to be no way to advance in life because of LIFE issues.  God the Father wants to work with them to accomplish what is right and good.  We might say that He wants to help such women put a solid wall around their lives – the wall of His protection.  It is up to those of us who represent Him to pray for and to stand alongside such women.

Lord, help us to seek out the women who need Your walls of protection around their lives.  Convict us to pray, even when we do not know for whom we pray. 

Topics:  Pray for women who need God’s protection in LIFE issues.  God knows their names.
