Today’s parallels to Elijah’s day are striking! What is so desperately needed in our day today are men and women who, like Elijah, can have and Elijah-like impact on this society. Elijah was used by God in his day to turn the hearts of the people back to God. In the New Testament book that bears his name, James is careful to note that Elijah was a man, a human being, with a nature just like us. So what was it that enabled him to be so used of God in his day of spiritual and moral decline? It was his prayer life!
Scripture reference: 1 Kings 18:1-46
