One of the greatest privileges any Christian has is to “approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16, niv). That’s an invitation from the Father Himself for us to pray!
God’s word tells us to “pray continually” (1 Thessalonians 5:17, niv) and “without ceasing” (nkjv). But, sometimes we need fellow Christians to partner with us as we pray about serious matters or difficult decisions.

Exodus 17:8-13 tells of a battle between the Israelites and the Amalekites. As long as Moses kept his hands raised toward heaven, Joshua and the Israelite army held the advantage. But as the conflict wore on, Moses grew weary, and his strength began to fail. Seeing his struggle, Moses’ brother and a friend—Aaron and Hur—came alongside Moses and held up his arms until the victory was won.
To me, this story exemplifies the heart of intercessory prayer. That’s a big word, but it just means prayer made on behalf of another person. Even the great Apostle Paul asked the members of the church at Ephesus to pray for him (Ephesians 6:19, niv).
