In this week's Prayers of Hope we will be analysing the Prayer Life of the great Patriarch Moses. He interceded in prayer for Israel after they had committed the grievous sin of worshipping the golden calf which provoked God's anger. But God was only testing Moses' love for the rebellious mob that he was leading. This test Moses passed with flying colours and it was deemed as the 'Noblest Act' that Moses had ever performed. God was pleased with this sacrificial act of Moses' love for the undeserving mob, which proved that he was truly a man after God's own heart.
Moses learnt to talk less and Pray more when he faced any challenge. The more time Moses spent In prayer with God the more he wanted to be with Him. Moses made a request to God that no other human being had ever requested, and that was to see God's Face.
There was a mutual love relationship between God and Moses, so God granted him his petition. However, God the took the measure to protect mortal Moses from His Holy sin consuming power. He advised Moses to hide in the cleft of a nearby rock and then God protectively covered Moses with His Omnipotent Hand. Then God proclaimed His Holy Character of Love; He is merciful, gracious, long-suffering (patient), abundant in goodness, truthful and forgiving. A more complex declaration of God's regard and Love for sinners would be hard to find and many can testify of it's accuracy.
So don't miss this opportunity to share the moment when we will gaze upon the Beauty of God's Holiness on Prayers of Hope and experience it's ability to empower us to shine for Him.
