Asking for Help
Often we hesitate to ask others for help. Speaking for myself, I am generally reluctant to ask for help, but I'm getting better at it. Really, there is no reason not to ask others for help. Even Moses needed help. Because he had a speech impediment, Aaron spoke to Pharaoh for him. Of course, that would look awkward in the movies, so the movies don't show Moses that way.
In Exodus 17, during a battle with the Amalekites, Moses got help again. Ex 17:11 As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses' hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up - one on one side, one on the other - so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.
If Moses is not ashamed to get help from others, we should not be ashamed to ask for help either. In fact, I am quite grateful for the many people who have helped me over the last several months. Many, many have prayed (and continue to pray) for me. Some have made donations of money or given in-kind donations. Others have offered words of encouragement, or even just ask how I am doing. I appreciate all of them.
If you would like prayer, I hope you will email me. I will respond with a prayer by email.

I created a weebly blog after seeing how simple it looked.

I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
