Keeping your arms raised for a period of time might not seem like a difficult task—until you try it. No matter how strong you are, you’ll eventually find it impossible to hold them up, as if a 20-pound weight were strapped to each one.
In Exodus 17:8-16, Moses was faithfully praying on a hill while his soldiers were below, fighting the Amalekites. As long as his arms were raised, the Israelites prevailed. But he couldn’t maintain this posture on his own for very long. He needed Aaron and Hur to hold up his hands.
The Lord never expected Moses to do the job by himself. Nor is He going to let any one of us be absolutely independent—that isn’t how He operates. God has built His church in such a way that the world will recognize Christians by their love toward one another (John 13:35). As we ultimately…

I attend a night service. The preacher shares about the importance of prayer through the power of the Holy Spirit. Altar call welcomes everyone to receive God’s help and blessing. Thus I respond to the altar call for God’s help in my life. In my heart, I ask the Lord for forgiveness upon me. Someone doctored my resume so that the government can give me grant. The course teacher mentioned his company needs help. I respond that I would like to be part of the project. However, after I attend the 3 days course, he forgets his promise. I don’t want to get into trouble with the law. I ask the Lord for discernment and wisdom. I will not believe into people’s empty promises of job opportunities. This happened outside of Japan.
Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.
Conviction of sins
Confess our sins
Receive forgiveness of sins
Sins are forgiven
Forgiveness from the living God
The dwelling of the Holy Spirit
We seek the presence of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit dwells within us
Chasing the interaction with God
The quiet moments with the Lord
Enable and empower us to
Acknowledge our sins
Deal with our sins
Grant us power to overcome temptations
Detect the wiles of the devil
Prevent us from
Sinning against the Lord
Prevent us from
Trespassing against the Lord
Victory from sins
Power of the Holy Spirit
By trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ

Great to listen to the preacher to preach about seeking the company of the Lord through our quiet moments. That reminds me of my enjoyment time with my ex-mentors and close friends. I particularly enjoy their presence through our activities. Oh. I feel so relieved of the pressure from my cell leader. Lord Jesus, thank You. Because she wants to see God to move powerfully through miracles. Inside, I cry a lot to the Lord. How can I stand this kind of request? And I tell God that I am weak and easily get affected. So I tell God I have made many mistakes and need a godly mentor. Suddenly, the preacher validates my upset. He preaches if people seeks the presence of the Holy Spirit just to get His blessings, it will chase the Holy Spirit away. Finally, I feel so happy. I can feel the Holy Spirit is happy. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.
