“And his hands were steady until….”


Everybody testify You are good, You are good Jehovah You are good, everybody testifying You are good, You are good Jehovah You are so good! Everybody testify You are good, You are good Jehovah You are good, everybody testifying You are good, You are good Jehovah You are so good! // I will Praise You Lord, I will Praise You Lord! I will Praise You Lord, I will Praise Your Name, if nobody will Praise Your Name, I will Praise You Lord! If nobody will worship You, I will Praise Your Name!

Our Father in heaven, we bow before You in worship, we glorify Your Holy Name, we adore You Mighty Father for Your goodness and for Your Wonderful works in the lives of Your children. Thank You Father, thank You Jesus, thank You Holy Spirit. Glory, Honour, Power and Majesty, belongs to Christ our God. Let the living Praise the Lord, let the living Praise the Lord! let the living Worship the Lord! let the living Praise the Lord! Glory glory, glory to the Father! Glory glory, glory to Son, Glory, glory glory to the Holy Ghost alleluia, alleluia!

Beloveth, let us give praise to our Father, the King of all creation, we worship You Lord, adoration to Your Holy Name, be Thou exalted forever and ever in Jesus Name.

Belovedth, welcome to the first prayer meeting of this month, are you happy to be in house of the Lord to worship and to glorify His Name? The psalmist said “I am glad when they say let us go the house the Lord” (Ps 122:1) I am glad also to be in the place of worship and not in the place of mourning. Praise the Lord!!!!!!!

It is a good to pray and not tried or get weary. How can one get tried or weary in the place of prayer? When you are not getting answers to your prayers, when you are not seeing manifestation of God’s favour in your life, when it seems as if your prayer are stagnated?

But when you receive answers to your prayers, first your joy will be full, your soul will be refreshed, and your innermost being will be energized. And when all these are in place, believe me you will not only want to pray, you will also encourage other to pray and you will even pray along with  them because you know that answers are coming, solution is on the way. Praise the Lord!

Beloved, we must not be tried or weary in the place of prayer. Oftentimes it looks like our prayers are not getting answers or we are getting answers but we need to pray more to overcome and looking at the events around you, you know that you are weary, may not make it. Considering what happened in the story before us today, Moses called for help.

Aaron and Hur helped Moses when he became weary at the place of prayer. Beloved, we also need to do the same when we are tried or when it looks like we are being weary in the place of prayer, you get others involved. Get some partners to pray with you. Of course you are not going just call on anybody, ask the Spirit of God to lead you to whom will share your burden with.

Come along for more:

“And his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.” Exodus 17:12

So mighty was the prayer of Moses, that all depended upon it. The petitions of Moses discomfited the enemy more than the fighting of Joshua. Yet both were needed. No, in the soul’s conflict, force and fervour, decision and devotion, valour and vehemence, must join their forces, and all will be well. You must wrestle with your sin, but the major part of the wrestling must be done alone in private with God.

Prayer, like Moses’, holds up the token of the covenant before the Lord. The rod was the emblem of God’s working with Moses, the symbol of God’s government in Israel. Learn, O pleading saint, to hold up the promise and the oath of God before Him. The Lord cannot deny His own declarations. Hold up the rod of promise, and have what you will.

Moses grew weary, and then his friends assisted him. When at any time your prayer flags, let faith support one hand, and let holy hope uplift the other, and prayer seating itself upon the stone of Israel, the rock of our salvation, will persevere and prevail. Beware of faintness in devotion; if Moses felt it, who can escape? It is far easier to fight with sin in public, than to pray against it in private.

It is remarked that Joshua never grew weary in the fighting, but Moses did grow weary in the praying; the more spiritual an exercise, the more difficult it is for flesh and blood to maintain it. Let us cry, then, for special strength, and may the Spirit of God, who helpeth our infirmities, as He allowed help to Moses, enable us like him to continue with our hands steady “until the going down of the sun;” till the evening of life is over; till we shall come to the rising of a better sun in the land where prayer is swallowed up in praise.

Praise the Name of Jesus, let us continue in prayer, until we see our answers come. Until our enemies are defected, until we are healed, until we are saved, until answers come, no matter what we may be going through, no matter what the enemies within and without are doing, let us keep our eyes on the Jesus, the Author and finisher of our faith. Praise the Name of the Lord.

Father, answer our prayers, may your power from high rest upon us to help us to pray in Jesus Name.

Belovedth pray, pray, pray until something happens. God sees and He is careful to perfect all that concerns you. Praise the Lord!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
