    The donkey saw Yahweh's angel, and she lay down under Balaam. Balaam's anger burned, and he struck the donkey with his staff. Yahweh opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, 'What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?' Balaam said to the donkey, 'Because you h...

    Here I Am from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo.  Here I Am. In a time when so many have begun to focus only on the negative, when so many people wonder, "Where is the Lord?", He answers, "Here I Am." When Moses met with the Lord at the burning bush in the wilderness, He asked Moses to r...

I Want to Hold Your Hand

  • When Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed. When he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses' hands were heavy; so they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side. His hands were steady until sunset. Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. Exodus 17:11-13 WEB

    It is easy to pray when things are going well in your life, but when things get so bad that you go into survival mode, then you need others to pray for you. There are times when you cannot walk alone, and it is you that is standing in the need of prayer.

    I have seen times when more than anything I needed to pray, but I no longer had the words, the energy, the faith, the willpower, or the hope to pray any longer. Spiritually exhausted, I began to sink into dark despair, but my friends at church prayed for me constantly, and things in my life began to change. Their prayers for me were answered.

    Today, if you are walking alone while your world seems to be crumbling around you, then share it with believers and get them to pray with you. It works. If you have no one like that, then you need to find a group of believers that will.

    If possible, visit the nearest church and speak to the pastor. If you cannot do that then join us at Refreshing Hope and post your prayer request. We will pray with you. Even if your life is great, be sure that you walk with other believers who will stand with you in the bad times. Like Moses, you sometimes need others to hold your hand.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that You put the people in my life that should be there. Separate me from bad influences and replace them with good ones. Please stir my heart to pray for those around me and raise up those who will pray for me, in the name of Jesus I pray. Amen!

I was in a horrific car accident a month ago and suffered a severe head trauma. I'm in need of prayer for my lawyer to do his job and help me to receive future medical and compensation fairly.

Thankyou in advance for all your prayers.
