In my personal opinion, we have yet to discover the depths to which God has sovereignly chosen to wait for — and rely upon — the deep-hearted, earnest, persevering prayers of His people before His answers are dispatched from Heaven to Earth.
Elijah was an outstanding prophet of God in Israel’s history. He was a man through whom God poured great measures of His divine power to accomplish great signs and wonders to confirm and affirm God’s messages spoken through him to Israel.
“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.
Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.”
📖 James 5:16-18
Let’s be people who devote ourselves to developing our prayer life, and to discovering the depths to which God intends that we earnestly pray.
See you at the altar of prayer, the place where God pours out His power and effectiveness from Heaven and into our situations.
