Having so many people praying for me was also an education. I knew about prayer. I believed in prayer, but I had no idea that I would be able to feel the sustaining power of prayer so tangibly. It reminded me of the story of Moses as he stood on the mountain watching his people battling in the valley below. When he lifted his hands the Israelites prevailed, but his hands grew tired and fell with weariness and the Israelites began to flounder. So Aaron and Hur held Moses' hands up and the Israelites won the battle.(See Exodus 17.) That's what it felt like--as if someone was holding me up so I could win the battle.
Thank you and keep praying for one another and for those who are in need. Prayer works! It lifts, it comforts, it brings about miracles.
