|Nehemiah Chapter 6 – questions for small groups and reflection
1. When have you been persistent in prayer and seen that prayer
2. When have you been persistent in prayer and nothing has happened?
3. Nehemiah perseveres with his task despite constant difficulties. When

4. How can you tell if you should persevere with something or if it is
right to let it go?
5. How do we show perseverance in our faith? What does this look like
for us as Christians?
