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.
Be blessed, Lynn

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
