I Was So Tired of Praying I Almost Gave Up

I’ve been praying for a specific financial need related to my overseas ministry for several years. Missionary work is a challenge because 1) I’m certainly not a professional fundraiser, and 2) most people don’t spend a lot of time thinking about needs in developing countries.

Eventually I hit a spiritual wall. I was discouraged. I had prayed and prayed and prayed again. Yet it seemed like the promised provision was just trickling in. I needed a miracle, but I felt too exhausted to keep fighting.

Thankfully a friend of mine who is an intercessor kept encouraging me with words of hope. I decided to fast and pray for a few days, and then my wife and a few other intercessors joined in for a time of fasting and focused prayer. I also texted several other friends who agreed to pray with me for a breakthrough. Much as Aaron and Hur held up Moses’ arms, my friends stood with me.

Troy Brewer: The Prophetic Message of America’s Birth

“I want to tell you, it’s really important to stand with your people. It’s one of the ways that we bring the Kingdom. I really do believe that,” Brewer says. “The Lord has placed me in a certain place at a certain time and I need to do my part to make sure that everything around me looks a little bit more like heaven than it looks like hell.”

One of the keys to understand about America’s founding is that Scripture has been weaved through some of the most monumental moments of our history.
