Weekly Devotion James 5:17-18
Posted On April 5, 2018
“Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.”
Elijah, though a great prophet, was a man subject to like passions as we are, whose prayers God answered. God did great things because of the prayers of Elijah. Elijah had great faith in a great God. If we have the same great faith in the same great God, we can accomplish great things like Elijah.
Lord, thank You honoring faith. Give me faith like the prophet Elijah. May I depend upon You in prayer for my every need. Help me to rely on You and cast my burdens on You knowing that I am Your son and You desire to answer my prayers.
