I love the story of the Israelites defeating the Amelekites in battle. It is always interesting to me that Moses’ hands needed to be raised in order for the Israelites to win and I have wondered the significants of this. The notes in my Bible made a great point reminding me that we need to lift up our leaders. They are only human and cannot do it alone. Too often we expect perfection out of our leaders and assume they should be better than everyone else. The truth is, a good leader cannot do it alone. They need the help and support of those they lead. And, most importantly, they need our prayers. Whether they recognize it or not, they need our support.
