Where Are America’s Elijahs? – Part 2

WHERE ARE AMERICA’S ELIJAHS?
                   (James 5:16-18) (Part 2)

I.  ELIJAH PERSONALLY PRAYED!
    A.  We have the same PRIVILEGE Elijah had.
    *Samuel Lee:  “Prayer is the soul’s colloquy with God, and secret prayer is a conference with God upon admission into the private chamber of heaven.  When you have shut your own prayer closet, when God and your soul are alone, with this key you open chambers of paradise and enter the closet of divine love.”
    B.  We have the same PROBLEM Elijah had.
    *Arthur Pierson:  “God has no greater controversy with His people today than this, that with boundless promises to believing prayer, there are so few who actually give themselves unto intercession.”
II.  ELIJAH PLEASINGLY PRAYED!
    A.  A “righteous” person stands perfectly righteous before God.
    B.  A “righteous” person walks personally righteous before God.
    *Psalm 66:18 “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.”
    *I John 3:22 “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.”
