Wellness Tuesday: Praying through the Battle
I’ve shared with you about my First Place 4 Health group and how much I loved them. However, I moved in the last year and I am too far to join them for regular meetings. Although, we do stay in contact online. But, it’s just not the same.
I’ve tried finding a FP4H group, but there is not one in my area. I’ve thought of starting one but the one attempt I’ve made so far fell through.
Recently, I was reading Candace Cameron Bure’s book Dancing through Life. The book details her struggles and the lessons she learned about herself and her walk with Christ while she was on Dancing with the Stars.
In one chapter she discusses how she really struggled. She discussed how she had to really push past a wall she had. In doing this, she thought about Moses and the battle they had. When he had his arms up the Israelite’s won, but when he lowered his arms they began to lose. However, Moses was tired and couldn’t keep his arms up. So Moses had someone to hold each of his arms up.
Candace realized she needed to have her arms lifted up. So she asked her prayer team to lift her up in prayer and help her keep her arms up.
This was like an a-ha moment for me. I’ve shared with my prayer team the struggles and ups and downs I’ve had with my health and weight loss. I’ve even asked them to pray for me about it in general terms.
But reading what Candace wrote made me realize I need to ask them to pray for me in specific terms in this area of my life. I’m unable to keep my arms up on my own. So, I went to my prayer team and shared all of this with them. I asked them to pray specifically for me and keep my arms lifted up in this battle.
After all, we’re told in Mark 11:23 that prayer and faith can move mountains.
What area of your life do you need prayer warriors to keep your arms lifted up?
