Love Builds Bridges
Sermon Summary: Key Scriptures to read out loud- Nehemiah 4:13-23 and Ephesians6:10-18
1) Stand in the gap and intercede for those going through difficult situations rather
than accusing them. Run towards those hurting and stand with them. Be slow to
speak and quick to listen.
2) God is always bigger than the problems we face. Trust in Him and don’t let fear be
a roadblock to what God wants to accomplish.
3) Pray for your enemy. Ephesians 6 tells us to be equipped with God’s armor. Don’t
show hate to person but ask how God would have you pray for them.
-Nehemiah equipped his team to cover each other in prayer
-Stand in the gap for others
-When the trumpet would sound, it was time to cover for the people that were under
attack. Vs. 20
-Put on the full armor of God
-The sword is the Word of God. If you find yourself in a battle- you need to pick up the
word of God, immerse yourself in scripture before the battle also.
– Intercession is standing in the gap for others
-Nehemiah understood unity and fighting together, stay connected and fight together.
Rally around each other.
