A Picture Of Prayer


A Picture Of Prayer
By Tom D Blakely

With Satan’s forces all around
God watches us with care
To see if we would fight alone
Or turn to Him in prayer…

When Moses back in days of old
Held both hands heavenward
The devil’s forces were withheld
And wickedness destroyed.

When Moses’ hands fell down to earth
The enemy prevailed
But when his friends supported him
The devil’s forces failed…

This is a picture to us all
Of how God answers prayer
When we submit ourselves to Him
And trust His loving care.

United we have victory
For faith knows no defeat
And prayerful friends will bear us up
At times when we are weak.


‘And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone, and put it under 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. And Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.’
[Exodus 17: 11-13]
