Weekend Prayer
Thankful Thursday

Aaron and Hur

Exodus 17:12 (New International Version) 12 When Moses' hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset.

Do you remember this story? I was reading this passage today and it occurred to me we need friends like Aaron and Hur. These two men held up Moses’ arms when he was too tired to continue.

The Israelites were in a heated battle with the Amalekites. When Moses held his staff, raise toward heaven, they dominated the battle. When Moses tired and his arms dropped from sheer exhaustion, the people began to lose ground.

We need friendships such as Aaron and Hur because there will come a time when we can’t walk a step further without help from someone.

I have found such friends right here in our Christian online community. Men and women whom God sends along at precisely the right moment, They hold my arms up high and pray for me.

I also am encouraged by a Godly kinship through the 1Peter3Living study group. This week we have been discussing the unique issues of attending church alone. Thank you my friends. My arms were tired and you always encourage me.

Do you need to be an Aaron or a Hur for for someone today? Pray right now for that person. Tell them you did.

Colossians 4:12 (New International Version) 12Epaphras, who is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends greetings. He is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured.

Be blessed, Lynn
