Today’s Verse: 

When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. Exodus 17:12


Fasting is hard and you need some encouragement sometimes. Thankfully, hundreds of us are linking arms and doing this fast together. You will find yourself weary during these 21 days and you may need someone to lean on. Exodus 17:12 Moses hands grew tired and so Aaron and Hur held up his hands to that the army could win the battle. Who can you reach out to during this fast for encouragement? You may need some help during this fast to stick with it and fight off temptation. Also, let’s be an encouragement to others during this fast.


  1. Who can you encourage today?
  2. Do you need personal encouragement during this fast?
  3. How can you do this fast better with a partner?


Lord, I need a little help today. But, I also want to be a help to others. I want to do this fast with passion and energy. Help me see others who need some extra encouragement today. Help me see the world the way you see the world today. Amen.
