November 14th 2016 – Hands Held High – Praying for Others

“And Moses said to Joshua, Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand. So Joshua did as Moses said to him, and fought with Amalek. And Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ handsbecame heavy; so they took a stone and put itunder him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.”(Exodus 17:9-12)

When Israel was fighting Amalek, Moses stood on top of the hill overlooking the battle, with his hands lifted high, and as long as they were lifted, Israel prevailed. When his arms became weary and dropped down, the battle went to Amalek; so Aaron and Hur drew up alongside Moses and they lifted up his hands, keeping them raised until sundown, because Moses didn’t have the strength within him to fight the battle alone.

Do you know a brother or sister who’s been going through a rough time? Possibly even a family member? Someone you know who really needs prayer? I’m sure you do.  So be an encouragement this week – lift them up in prayer, stand beside them, and help them through the battle. You never know how your help might affect a far greater spiritual battle they’re involved in. And with so much work to be done, remember too, that he who refreshes will himself be refreshed!


Heavenly Father, I love You and praise You Lord. Thank You for always being here to watchover me and help me when I am having troubles. Thank You for always blessing me even when I don’t see it right away. Thank You for the people that You have brought into my life that pray for me when I am having struggles. I lift up ______ who is also struggling with ______. I will keep them lifted up high in prayer. I ask that You would personally make yourself known to them. Love them and comfort them in this battle. Cause it to end swiftly with glorious victory.  I also lift up the leadership of our country. Please Draw them close to You. May they realize that they can find forgiveness from You and seek Godly direction. In Jesus’ Precious name, Amen.
