I Want to Hold Your Hand

  • Whenever Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed, and whenever he lowered his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses' hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. So his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the sword. Ex. 17:11 ESV

    When things are going well in your life it is easy to pray, even though we may neglect to. But when things get so badly that you go into survival mode, 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 no longer had the words, the energy, the faith, the willpower, or the hope to pray any longer. Exhausted, I sank into dark despair, but my church friends 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 is crumbling around you, 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 believers that will. Start by visiting the nearest church and meeting with the pastor. If you cannot do that then send us your prayer request simply by clicking the "Prayer" link on the website. Even if your life is great, be sure that you walk with other believers who will stand with you in the bad times. In this life, 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. Stir my heart to pray for those around me and raise up those that will pray for me, in the name of Jesus I pray.

    Note: Good morning! Some group updates this week: the Creation Photographers theme of the week is Four-Legged Animals! This would be a great week to post pics of your fur-babies, as well as other animals God might show you out in the world! The FAAD topic of the week is Part 2 of the "Witnessing" series, called "The Blessing". Be sure to check out this wonderful teaching in the Discussion tab of the FAAD group! Have a blessed day :)!

Tryphena Barnesedited: November 10, 2015 This devotional has my name and address on it. This is exactly what I'm going through in this season of my life. Sometimes I don't have words, so I just worship!!!! I cry and I worship Him- I just say Thank you Father that you have my times in your hand and you hear the depths of my heart crying out to you.  those around me witness silence but You hear me loud and clear.  I would love for all that have a personal relationship with the Lord to remember me when you are in prayer....Call my Name out Loud and clear!!! Thank you in advance and Pastor Dion and Sylvia, Thank you two for your continued obedience to the voice of our Heavenly Father-Yahweh-The I AM that I AM! God bless you all

Twila Stierwalt
Twila Stierwalt I do believe that God answers prayer, and that in Gods word He tells us to pray for our brouther's and sister's in Christ. I know it is God that does the work, but we are involved in His work. I also pray that God sends those that need encouragement across my path. I pray daily for this ministery, that God uses you, Pastor Dion and Silivia in a mighty way. I can see that this is happening. Praise God! Just yesterday I had a lady that I do not know, saw something I posted on face book, ask me to pray for her. This can only be a God thing.

Valerie Fields
Valerie Fields Thank you for this message Pastor Dion!  I so know this to be true.  For the past few months I have been a mess due to problems in my marriage. I got to the point where I just could not pray. I asked for prayer from my church members and everyone else I knew. I even posted a prayer request on this site. I tried calling into a couple of prayer lines but that was not working for me beacuse there was just too much going on during the calls and each time I called in....someone called me out to lead the prayer.  I was so torn I could barely find the words to pray for myself.... How could I possibly lead prayer amongst others???  I stopped calling in. One day I went to a women's conference and afterwards I joined a few of the ladies for brunch. I was so messed up, I started crying right there at the table in the restaurant! One of the ladies, who I had just met gave me her number and told me to call her. She told me that it was all in Divine order because she had gone through some of the same things in her marriage!  We started praying together on the phone twice a week and promised to pray on our own on the other days of the week.  GOD has truly ministered to me during this time!  My husband and I have since separated however we communicate more now than we have in a long time! We are working our way back to one another and I know our latter days will be GREATER than our former.  I feel so much peace in my spirit now. God has helped me to release so much anger and bitterness.  I spoke to the First Lady at my church and I tokd her that I was not coming back there for awile as I was tired of living a lie.  She prayed with me and gave me her blessing but encouraged me not to stop going to church completely.   I stopped attending church with my husband and I am now going to a church where everytime I walk through the doors.... It's like the Holy Spirit is speaking directly to me! My husband and I will be together again.  God is working on both of us separately at this time so that when we do..... We will be able to appreciate each other more and GOD WILL GET ALL OF THE GLORY!!!!!   I said all that to say....THE PRAYERS OF THE RIGHTEOUS AVAILETH MUCH!   Stay Encouraged!

Michelle  Austin-Dor
Michelle Austin-Dor Thank you Pastor Dion for this word. It fits my situation so well. The past couple weeks have been trying for me to say the least. After being unemployed for the second time for tis year I finally started a new job at the beginning of October. I was so behind on all my bills I hinestly couldn't see a way out. But I prayed and drew on my faith and I also posted on your prayer board here and the saints in this chruch aso prayed for me. I got through October, being behind on my bills, having my car totaled and ending up in the hospital due to complications with my diabetes. I got through because I had people interceding for me and praying for deliverance and that breakthrough. I see God working in my life. He always comes through, even when it seems impossible. He always comes through. I can testify to this, I didn't think I would make my bills this month either, but a family member stepped in to help and I know it was God working and answering my prayers and those who prayed for me. Things are still not the best but I am steadfast in my belief that God will deliver me from anything that is binding me. That I will be able to make my bills, that I won't be living from paycheck to paycheck and that I will be able to provide for my sons all they need.

James McDaniel
James McDaniel I love this message. It is a short and in some ways "simple" message compared to many of Pastor Dion's lessons, but an active prayer life is essential to the Christian faith. We need to take prayer seriously and we need to pray for others and have the courage to ask for prayer ourselves. Sometimes that isn't so easy. Thank you!

Carol Policastro I am like a lot of people who responded to this post today.  My friends, I too have some issues going on in my life that are out of my control.  I came to work angry, and all I could do was call on the Lord to help me put this behind me.  He is so faithful all the time.  So, if any of my friends would like to add me and my family to their prayers today ---- I am open and eager to accept all prayer.  I am sure I will feel the good effects as the day progresses.  Thank you Pastor Dion, Sylvia and RHM!  Love you all and God bless you all!!

Carol Pady Amen! Although I have been called to pray for others and I pray throughout the day, in my times of deepest sorrows, frustration, persecution and even in times of uncertainty or when my family members travel, I  request prayer from my brothers and sisters in Christ.  Just hearing their prayers soothes my soul. We are the family of Christ and as we encourage each other and lift each other in prayer our faith is strengthened!
