Exodus 17:8-16 – intercessory prayer is part of a 3-fold battle; Moses (leader who gets tired; President Trump); Aaron and Hur (experienced supporters; intercessors); and Joshua and his hand-picked warriors (attorneys and their legal teams).
The Lord woke me up early this morning with this passage. One main point is this — as long as Moses’ hands were raised, meaning he was willing for the battle to continue, Israel would win. His intercessions were just as much a battle as the one Joshua and his warriors were fighting. Fatigue was a real problem.
We know that this is a spiritual battle and it’s a vicious one. Many intercessors are feeling the fatigue, too. But intercessors are needed now more than ever. Spiritual / mental / emotional / physical fatigue sometimes cause leaders to quit fighting.
NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO QUIT.
