Moses with His Arms Supported by Aaron and Hur by Brigstocke, Thomas, 1809-1881

“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Mat. 26:41). The weakness of the flesh is exemplified in Israel’s battle against the Amalekites in Exodus 17. Despite Moses’ strong spirit, the battle would have been lost if Aaron and Hur had not lifted his hands, which had become weak. Satan’s constant strategy is to attack our prayer lives, and it would only be a matter of time before we collapse spiritually. But Prayer Warriors are power brokers. They tarry long in God’s presence; whatever they aim to achieve is a done deal. Prayer warriors know God, who rules powerfully over all people, nature, and circumstances. Let us pray for one another as a service to the Body and as a means of personal protection against unguarded moments which Satan could seize and make us fall into temptation. The potential of prayer is unlimited. When we get to heaven and realize what we could have accomplished through prayers, we will regret our microwave prayer lives and wish we did more.
