Exodus 17:8-16

April 21, 2012

Now Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim.9And Moses said to Joshua, “Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.” So Joshua did as Moses said to him, and fought with Amalek. And Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. (Exodus 17:8-11)
      Lord, there are many who contend with us and who strive against your church and your people. The battle goes this way and that.

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. So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. (Exodus 17:12-13)
      Holy Spirit, raise up Aarons and Hurs to support by prayer and encouragement our bishops, priests, deacons and lay leaders. Hold up the hands of
            Bill Love
            Dan Herzog
            David Ball
            David Bena
            Harold Miller
            Mike Chapman
            Mark Lawrence
            And others.
      So that your people will win the victory.

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write this for a memorial in the book and recount it in the hearing of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.” (Exodus 17:14)
      Father, help us remember all those times you have defended us and given us the victory. It was not because of our goodness, but because of your great love for us.

And Moses built an altar and called its name, The-Lord-Is-My-Banner; (Exodus 17:15)
      Jesus, you are our banner, help us to hold high your cross of victory over sin and death.

for he said, “Because the Lord has sworn: the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” (Exodus 17:16)
      LORD, your judgments are righteous and true: give us hearts to accept your word and your will for us. Thank you.

      13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
      14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
      15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
      16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Easter Quotes: The real-world ramifications of the Easter message

April 21, 2012

… the Easter message is so much more than sunny weather, pretty new clothes, colored eggs, and chocolate bunnies. On the contrary, it’s a message of hope with real-world ramifications. And it has the power to change lives and inspire courage and heroism in the face of suffering and tyranny.

from a recent blog entry “The Easter Message and Christian Hope” at Creedal Christian – read the whole entry.
