Prayer in Exodus

The first prayer is the people crying out to God in the end of ch 2

God then appears “in person” in the burning bush, and talk to Moses. After that, there are a number of instances of God and Moses speaking directly.

The next reference to “prayer” comes when Pharaoh asks Moses to pray for him to the Lord to remove a plague (8:8-9. 28-29, 9:28, 10:17). Again, as in Genesis, this use of the word “pray” seems to mean “intercede” rather than just “talk to God”.

One thought on “Prayer in Exodus

  1. How wonderful it is now that god resides in our fleshly temples forever. Can we ever get any closer to god than that. Truly jesus has done a wonderful purification removing our sins forever.
