My Deliverer

“So Jehoahaz pleaded with the Lord, and the Lord listened to him, for He saw the oppression of Israel, because the king of Syria oppressed them.”  2 Kings 13:4

“Then the Lord gave Israel a deliverer, so that they escaped from under the hand of the Syrians; and the children of Israel dwelt in their tents as before.”  2 Kings 13:5

I see this:
our pleading + God’s listening = deliverance

Lord, I’m pleading with You for deliverance of those who are being oppressed today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .


The oppression is so great
they can but hardly pray

and so I’m pleading with You
to please take it away

lift the heaviness
that keeps pushing them down

let them see their Deliverer
has come to save them now.



  1. Deb this is such a beautiful post – how we need the prayers of one another! This encouraged me as I have been personally blown away this week with how God places our burdens on the hearts of others – may He use me in the same way. Your little equation gives me great hope. Bless you wonderful heart xx

  2. Thank you, Deb 🙂

    “our pleading + God’s listening = deliverance” I like!! 🙂

    “Lord, I’m pleading with You for deliverance of those who are being oppressed today. ”
    Praying alongside you, Dear Deb.

    Thank you for this beautiful post today. God bless you today and always.


  3. Deb, thank you! This is powerful and I join you in this prayer and calling out to our God. He always provides our deliverer doesn’t he?! Blessings!

  4. “…our pleading + God’s listening = deliverance…”

    And God’s deliverance generally comes by the Spirit of the Lord anointing someone to preach the gospel, proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, and to set free those who are oppressed (Luke 4:18)

    God bless you for this insight.

  5. Psalm 107:6 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.

    Great message for He is our deliver and will always be there…

  7. Oh Sis Deb, this is Wonderful!! Thank you for your loving prayers for all who are oppressed–and for encouraging us to continue to pray for one another, as it “availeth much”!! Bless you, bless you, sweet sister of mine!

  8. Hi Deb,
    Great post, I think that sometimes it is in our oppression that we will only turn to God, otherwise we keep counting on ourselves. But when the going gets tough, and it is finally out of our hands and all “other” hope is lost that we finally cry out to God for deliverance, and He comes. God Bless-Jim

    Inspired words Deb. Thank you.

    Lord, open our eyes that we may see those in deepest need.
    Lord, lay their need upon our hearts.
    Lord, open our hearts that we may respond in intense prayer to You.
    Lord, deliver the oppressed.

    You are an amazing God, able to do exceedingly above all we can ask or even think.
